Homeless packets help appreciated

I would like to thank the merchants who donated the products for the homeless packets I put together, and delivered to the St. Vincent de Paul Help Center for Christmas. They put them in the warming center.

With the help of my daughter, Trina, and my friend, Chuck, it was a rewarding, pleasant and joyful time.

The merchants in Coeur d’Alene that I contacted were very congenial and helpful. They contributed the products I needed to put the items together that would be helpful to the homeless.

Merchants: Winco, Super 1, Safeway, North 40, Black Sheep and Shopko.

I was able to put together 25 packets. My goal for next Christmas is 50 packets. Again, I thank the merchants who aided me with the goal I set for myself this year.
