Thank you Cheney for your generosity to our community's children.
Letters to the Editor
With your help, Christmas Gifts for Cheney Kids was able to provide gifts for 197 local children in 84 families, through Cheney Outreach. In addition to gifts and cash donated by local individuals and businesses, several organizations contributed.
Special thanks to Spokane Valley Kiwanis for books from their Book Bank, RSVP Knitting Group for caps, gloves and blankets, a PEO group for gifts, and Zumiez for jackets, hoodies, blankets, socks, caps and gloves.
Thanks also to major cash donors Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Cheney United Church of Christ Women’s Fellowship.
Thank you to the 18 Cheney businesses and 5 churches who hosted collection boxes for three weeks to receive the locally donated gifts, and the 44 volunteers who contributed their time to assist project director Sally Shamp to make this all happen again this year.
