Sterling Senior Center thankful for holiday donations

The Sterling Senior Center Christmas Elves and Elfettes want to thank each and every one of the generous people who contributed to the kids this year. Be it cash, toys, clothing or gift wrapping, the combined effort made it possible to make sure 107 children had at least two presents to open this past Christmas. Each child got a package containing a warm hat, socks and winter gloves and another package containing a toy suitable to their age. Our seniors are the best! Without your help, this effort would not have succeeded. Thanks again for your generosity.
