The Community Needs Agency Christmas Baskets to individuals and families in need have been distributed, but the agency’s need continues throughout the year. CNA will gratefully accept donations to help families and individuals all year long. This year CNA set a fundraising goal of $45,000. The CNA board of directors and executive director Theresa Meister thank those listed below, as well as those who have dropped donations at Kroger for the Bucket Brigade and in the Counter Kettles to help meet this goal. We wish you all the greetings of the season, the merriest of Christmases and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. Bless you all for caring.
