Pioneer Polar Express

It's that time again folks!!! Time to roll out the 7th annual Christmas Gift Drive, now known as the Pioneer Polar Express. My elf accountant's calculations say that the good people of this community will have raised close to $24,000.00 to help families in and around Greenhills after we complete this year

For those of you who are unfamiliar with this, I will do my best to briefly explain it again

The very generous people of this community donate money in $25 "shares" to the "Granny CJ fund". The GCSO matches those contributions (up to $2000). Needy families right here in our community have been identified for us. Each family is assigned a team captain who will manage the process from collecting the $$ all the way through to delivering the gifts directly to the families. We will be wrapping the gifts at our annual Christmas Party. If you have not witnessed the gift wrapping, "controlled mayhem" is the best description I can use. It's a great opportunity to get the kiddies involved. We are still working on the details of the wrapping/ Xmas party.

All the team captains from last year will now be asked to find their own replacements. This has served us well in expanding the number of people involved.

Thank you all for your generosity, and Merry Christmas!!!!

Feel free to sign up right here on this thread. If you would like to let me know what I should bring to your village on Christmas eve, you can let me know that as well. Feel free to send me a PM if you wish to identify a family in need.

thanks again and hohohohohohohohoho!!!!!!!
