UPDATE: Our group met earlier this month to evaluate how to proceed with the Annual Christmas Food Baskets & we NEED your help! Each year on average we aid between 150-200 local families & considering the circumstances of 2020, we expect that number to be substantially higher this winter. Unfortunately, as you know, due to COVID-19 Picklefest 2020 had to be canceled…the festival revenue is used to fund the baskets, so without it, we are not quite sure how we are going to be able to meet the need. This is where we are hoping y’all can help! We have estimated that approximately $3,000 will need to be raised to facilitate purchasing all the items required for the baskets. Keep in mind, there is no amount too small…every penny will help us reach our goal! Donations can be made directly to our Centennial Bank account, dropped off at City Hall or given to any PBA member. We appreciate any & all help as we move forward in this endeavor. If you have questions, need additional information or if you have ideas/suggestions on how to better generate the funds, please let us know. Thank you in advance for your help & please share to help us get the word out!!
