Each year, Lynn Doyle of Bloomin Minds designs a project with the spirit of giving as her purpose. This is the second year, we've joined Lynn in her efforts. All proceeds from the sales of her "You've Got a Friend" pattern and kit sold through December 21st were donated to the Goodfellows. The Iowa West Foundation matched the donation dollar-for-dollar. This year our contribution from this effort totaled over $2,400.
While the holiday season is a time of great joy for most Americans, many families are struggling, often for reasons beyond their control. The Goodfellows’ goal is to serve as a bridge – a means of allowing area residents to demonstrate the real spirit of the season by sharing some of their bounty with those who have fallen on hard times.
Thanks to all who purchased a kit or pattern, making Christmas just a bit brighter for at least five families in the local area.
