To the editor:
Every day the Leavenworth Assistance Center gets more families in need of help. If you would like to provide assistance they are in need of the following items: Hats, dark colors for boys, stretch fit all; socks, 0 to 12 months, 18 to 36 months, 3 to 5 years and 6 to 12 years; underwear, boys 2T-3T-4T, size 6 -8-10-12-14-16; underwear, girls, 2T-4T, size 6 to 8 and size 16.
Organizations are invited to hold a Christmas collection. Please do not gift wrap articles. Cash, gift cards from Wal-mart, K-mart, Aldi's, Country Mart, Price Chopper or Dillon's and other donations are gladly accepted. These will go to the needy children and families in Leavenworth County.
We are encouraging organizations to hold this drive from Oct. 15 until Nov. 30. The Center needs the items early so they can arrange to distribute them with the "Toys for Tots." Their goal is to give each child all that they need.
These can be dropped off at the Assistance Center or you can make arrangements for the items to be picked up by calling 682-7873. Thank you for your generosity.
