2018 6th Annual M. J. & AUDREY MAE BARRETT
Memorial Christmas Give
Hello everyone, we are so excited about the success of our,
6th Annual M.J. & Audrey Mae Barrett Memorial Christmas Give.
We advertised 100 unprepared Christmas dinners to be distributed to families in need in our area. However, we actually distributed 125 dinners plus an additional 26 coupons, for Crumps (our local Food Center) to honor. These families were very happy and grateful to receive the blessing of a complete meal for Christmas. Each meal consisted of one turkey or ham and all the trimmings necessary for a complete dinner. The Christmas meals were distributed on a first come – first served basis, and there were no meals left when it was over. There were also toys that were donated to, The Cass County Protective Services Angel Tree.
There were a lot of folks that came out again this year to make sure our Christmas Give was a success, and we would like to thank you all for your hard work and ongoing dedication of making these area families happy for Christmas.
We must give special recognition to our two young very own “2018 Christmas Give” Santa Helpers, Ellington “Duke” (7) and Zion (5) Yarbrough. Duke and Zion greeted our families as they came in, they helped pack the meals, they danced, and they kept the Christmas spirit alive. As the families came in with their children, Duke and Zion both gave the children special greetings and really made them feel special. They even when over and beyond by giving some children some of their own toys which really brought a high spirit to the whole meaning of “Christmas Give”. They both made us all very proud, and we thank their parents, Atty. Shelby and Reginald Yarbrough, because as we know…..it all goes back to you and your village.
We look forward to our 2019 7th Annual M.J. and Audrey Mae Barrett Memorial Christmas Give!
