Families appreciated gifts

   On behalf of the Maltby Food Bank clients, I want to thank you for you tremendous outpouring of love to our families this Christmas season. You were so kind and generous to them. You made their Christmas very special.

   We are thankful to the Woodinville Post Office for their willingness to have a giving tree for our families. Thank you, Sandy Peterson, for all your hard work behind the scenes.

   Christmas is a very hard time for our families. Just like everyone's children, they see the advertisements for certain toys, but they know they cannot always afford them. The donors from the giving tree made many children's dreams come true.

   Everyone was very appreciative of their gifts. The true spirit of Christmas was given this holiday season. Your love and care for people you do not know was felt and received with love returned. God bless each of you.

Fran Walster, Maltby Food Bank
