Thank You: Optimist Christmas program thanks

January 08, 2002

The Optimist Clubs of El Centro would like to thank the residents from throughout the Imperial Valley for their support of our second annual "Perfect Christmas" activity. This event was held for the benefit of the children of Los Niños, The Center for Family Solutions (Womanhaven) and the House of Hope at Christmas time.

The goal of our "Perfect Christmas" activity was to supply a Christmas tree, complete with decorations, and an age appropriate Christmas gift for each resident child to each of these organizations.

As was last year's "Perfect Christmas,n

" our plan was a grand success and the generous support of the entire community helped make it all possible.

In addition to the kind individual donations from our Valley citizenry, we would also like to thank Wal-Mart, and its manager Kedron Blecha, the management of Kmart and Trey Faubion of Timco Christmas trees for their kind and generous support of our activity.


The Christmas season is a time of sharing and giving. The Optimist Club is very appreciative of the many people who through one way or another shared of their efforts and resources enabling us to give to the children of Los Niños, the Center for Family Solutions and the House of Hope a "Perfect Christmas."

Thank you again, Imperial Valley.
