Fund Is Lagging
Unless many local contributors
to the rescue and contribute
toys to be repaired at the fire sta
tion and make contributions to
the Empty Stocking Fund, care
of Miss Milly Price, president of
the Young Churchmen at Saint
Paul’s Episcopal Church, some
Edenton children under 12 will
not have the Christmas cheer in
tended for them.
Last year 198 children were as
sisted by the Young Churchmen
and the list is not much shorter
then that this year.
Many people misundrestand the
program that has been sponsored
by the Young Churchmen for
some years. It is intended for
ehilden only and is mainly for
toys and Christmas cheer they
tyould not have provided for them
otherwise. Applications in writ
ing will be received until Friday
poon and distribution of boxes
Will be Tuesday, December 23,
from 9 to 12 A. M., at the Parish
House on Gale Street. Those re
ceiving boxes will receive a card
in the mail this week.
Please give generously to the
Empty Stocking Fund today.
