Well, you folks have done it again! For the 44th time, you have reached deep in your pockets and created the magic of Christmas in Rutland County. There is no room here to thank the many residents, visitors and local businesses who together made it possible for the WSYB Christmas Fund to reach 825 kids and seniors this year. And there is no way to adequately express the look on that child’s face as they were able to unwrap a present Christmas morning because you cared enough to make a donation. How do we tell you about the eyes of a senior who felt alone and forgotten until your gift came? And how those eyes watered up? And they did.
Please know each and every donation to the WSYB Christmas Fund creates this magic. Please understand how those of us who are lucky enough to witness your yearly donations to those less fortunate in Rutland County makes us feel we are surrounded by very special people. People who care. People who give to their neighbors because they want to. People who understand about the magic of Christmas. Thank you all.
Laura Vien, volunteer administrator; and Brian Collamore, president, WSYB Christmas Fund
