Sterling groups unite to make holidays brighter for others
Thanksgiving and Christmas were made a little brighter this year thanks to the combined efforts and generosity in our Sterling community.
Donations of food and/or money came from Abundant Life Assembly of God; Ministry of the Living Stones; Sterling Baptist Church; Sterling Lutheran Church; Sterling Elementary School; local merchants; Alaska Trading & Loan; ABATE; TOPS; Sterling Masonic Lodge; and the Sterling Community Club and many individuals. As a result of their generosity:
45 families received Thanksgiving baskets.
43 families received Christmas baskets.
55 children received Christmas gifts.
A special thank you to Pastor Bob Reasner and all the crew from Abundant Life for being so diligent in putting this program together. Thank you to everyone who helped in the assembling of the food. We can be proud of our community and everyone's efforts in making holidays special for others.
