FfF Gives Special Gifts This Holiday Season

Friend for Friends Christmas 2015
December 15, 2015

We hope this note finds you well and ready to enjoy with family and friends all of the Blessings this Christmas season will bring.

Your Friends for Friends (FfF) Executive Board met last week and approved four nominations to assist area families with the challenging financial realities that hang over them from dealing with medical issues, and in some cases, mourning the loss of a loved one.

Donations of $1,500.00 each went to a family of four children who lost their loving father to a massive stroke; and to a family who lost their beloved son after a long, courageous battle with a rare cancer.

The third donation of $1,500.00 went to help a woman with her medical expenses related to her decades-long illness.

And our fourth donation was in the amount of $2,000.00, thanks to a special gift from a generous FfF member, to help brighten the Christmas of two small children, who recently lost their Dad and are being raised by their grandparents.

In Memoriam

I am sorry to have to tell you that Friends for Friends lost one of its charter members and most loyal supporters, Jean Ann Vogelman.

Jean and her husband, Darren, were, and always will be, a vital part of the spirit and success of FfF. Please keep the Vogelman family in your prayers.

Raffle Winner

On a brighter note, I’m happy to tell you that Judy Culberson was the winner of our 1st Daily Number Raffle. A hearty and sincere thank you to all who helped to sell or purchase the 1,000 tickets and make it a very lucrative drawing. Read More »
