148 baskets distributed throughout community this year
From an observer’s point of view, the Christmas Basket Program giveaway seemed to go without a hitch on Friday, just two days before Christmas.
Dave Blevins, chairman of the Powell Council for Community Services, said there were 148 Christmas baskets this year. In 2010, there were 136.
If it takes a small army to haul all the free clothing to Sally’s Boutique that is run by Sally Montoya, then it must be close to a battalion helping to cart the Christmas baskets of food and new toys to the recipients’ cars.
