Almost $4,000 still needed for Community Christmas Tree fund to hit its goal

BLUEFIELD — Contributions Monday of $2,011 helped push the Community Christmas Tree closer to its campaign goal.

With 10 days to go before the Little Jimmie party, the campaign is now $3,997 short of its $30,000 goal. This year’s party will be Friday, Dec. 21, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the city auditorium on Stadium Drive in Bluefield. More than 800 children have been registered for the party.

With the big day fast approaching, a team of volunteer shoppers will soon be heading to the Bluefield Kmart to purchase hundreds of toys that will be distributed at this year’s party.

As in year’s past, plans call for giving each child registered for the program a red bag filled with two toys — selected especially for each individual child — food, treats, a book, toboggan, a pair of gloves and other goodies. This year’s party will be Friday, Dec. 21, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the city auditorium on Stadium Drive in Bluefield.

Help is still needed to meet this year’s goal. 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.
