Little Jimmie needs help to collect $4,000 needed to reach goal

BLUEFIELD — The Community Christmas Tree gained momentum Tuesday with $2,335 in donations.

However, with only five days remaining before this year’s big party, the campaign is still $4,032 short of its $30,000 goal. Help is still needed to make Saturday’s party a success, and to ensure a joyous Christmas for more than 800 children who would otherwise go without this year.

A team of volunteer shoppers are still hard at work purchasing hundreds of toys at the Bluefield Kmart for Saturday’s party. The shopping teams are expected to be finished by mid-week. The Little Jimmie party is this Saturday from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the city auditorium on Stadium Drive in Bluefield.

Sponsored by the Bluefield Daily Tele-graph, the Community Christmas Tree — also known as the Little Jimmie campaign — provides toys, treats, a book, toboggan, a pair of gloves and other goodies to hundreds of local children in need each year.

Those who would like to contribute to the Community Christmas Tree program can mail donations to: Bluefield Daily Telegraph, c/o Community Christmas Tree, P.O. Box 1599, Bluefield, WV, 24701; or drop them off at the Daily Telegraph office. Checks should be made payable to the Community Christmas Tree Fund.
