Gifts to give

Gifts to give This group of women were busy Monday evening sacking up gifts made possible by the generous donations of Vermillion citizens to the ESA Giving Trees located throughout the community. The gifts were collected at retail businesses and other locations in town that sponsored a Giving Tree, giving townsfolk the opportunity to select cards off the trees and help purchase gifts for families and children that otherwise may not have a very Merry Christmas this year. Also lending assistance to this program is the Vermillion Pamida store, managed by Dan Kenton, pictured in the center of this group, and the Pamida Foundation, which provided $500 to the local Giving Tree program to help with purchase of needed gifts. The Giving Tree program will provide Christmas presents to 223 families and 263 children ranging in age from two months to 17 years in Vermillion. The gifts will be distributed Thursday and Friday, Dec. 18 and 19. (Photo by David Lias)
