Plays Santa Claus
To Needy Family
The Research and Quality Control
laboratories dispensed with their usual
Christmas party this year and played
Santa Claus to a needy family in this
area. Bearing loads of packages, gro
ceries, clothing and toys for the children
the entire laboratory personnel deliv
ered the gifts in person late in the
afternoon of December 23.
The gifts from the Fieldcrest group
represented the only Christmas cheer
available to the family involved. The
family had no Christmas last year. The
farm family consists of the ailing father,
the mother, daughters nine and six
years old, and a little son three years
old. The three-year-old boy is in pre
carious health and recently underwent
an expensive operation, adding to the
family’s financial difficulties.
The gifts included dolls and tea sets
for the girls, an air gun and a red toy
truck for the boy (the first such items
he’d ever seen) and new clothing for
the entire family. Money to apply on
the hospital bill was enclosed in a
Christmas card. The boxes of groceries
were topped off with a fruit cake and
candy and nuts.
When unsetting the table, stack dishes
orderly in place to be washed so that
they will not have to be moved or re
stacked before washing.
