Christmas is a time when we should all wish to spread cheer and joy, more-so than any other time of the year, and people right in here in the Ohio Valley are doing just that!
Dozens of people from all corners of the Ohio Valley are banding together this holiday season to show their love of humanity.
“We package and deliver 100 food baskets to needy families in both Marshall and Ohio Counties and we have spilled over into part of Brooke County and part of Belmont County in Ohio,” said Loris Haynes, Elks Lodge 28 Secretary.
A number of Christmas projects are underway right now to make sure that everyone can have an enjoyable Christmas, even if they don’t have the means to have a warm meal or buy gifts, because after all; Christmas is about far more than the presents.
“We want to show the love of God and this is a wonderful community and we help each other,” said Reverend Darrell Cummings of the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple.
Here’s a look at some of the events that are happening across the Ohio Valley over the next two weeks.
