Efforts of many helped seniors

Efforts of many helped seniors

On behalf of the staff at Home Instead Senior Care, I would like to thank everyone who helped with this year’s very successful Be a Santa to a Senior program.

With support from generous shoppers, Catholic Charities, Hands on Volunteer Network, Guardian and Protective Services of the Trumbull County Probate Court, Claire Bridge of Austintown, Sterling House of Salem, Paisley House, Mahoning County Adult Day Services, Greenbriar Commons and Valley Renaissance, Walmart on Elm Road, Walgreens in Austintown, Optiview Vision Centers in both Niles and Austintown and Curves in Boardman and Austintown and the Trumbull County Career and Technical Center paths for teaching profession program, we were able to collect more than 2,000 gifts for local seniors who otherwise might have been overlooked this holiday season.

We also would like to thank the many volunteers who shared their time to collect, wrap and deliver the gifts to 500 area seniors who continue to struggle during these tough economic times. And we also would like to thank the many places for the donations of food we received from Huntington Woods Subway, Chick fil-A Boardman, Eat N Park of Austintown, Chipotle of Austintown and Westgate Pizza of Austintown to help feed our volunteers so they were able to stay energized throughout the day

Thanks to all those who helped us brighten the holidays for our local seniors and truly making a difference in our community.

Councilman exceeds call of duty

I want to commend Campbell Council President, George Levendis, who took it upon himself, on his own time and at his own expense to power wash and paint the Campbell Water Works building, thus sparing the citizens of Campbell this expense.

It is also fitting to thank the Campbell Pride organization for their efforts in decorating the city and continued endeavors to improve the appearance of the city. Their efforts are truly appreciated.

Robert Tarcy, Campbell
