Letter to the editor: Christmas Bureau helps support needy

Tuesday, December 24, 2013 - 12:01 am

The families and the children of individuals under Allen County Community Corrections’ supervision have been fortunate enough to receive donations of toys, clothes and a wonderful monetary donation from the Allen County Christmas Bureau.

Under the leadership of President Jane Surbeck and her dedicated board members there has never knowingly been a needy family without some kind of assistance.

Allen County Community Corrections wishes to express its deepest appreciation and acknowledgement to the Christmas Bureau for its continued support of families that may otherwise not receive any assistance for food or toys this year and continually over the past 22 years.

The abundance of gifts as well as a monetary donation for families to purchase meat and produce for a Christmas dinner was delivered to the Community Corrections Center last week from the Christmas Bureau.

This kindness reaches many people. In the coming days, case managers that communicate daily with individuals in their care will distribute the gifts to families, toys going to families with children.

Truly, the purpose of the Christmas Bureau is to provide to those in greatest need at Christmastime, and this kindness will never be taken for granted by either staff at Allen County Community Corrections or the families the program serves.
