Thoughts While Shaving for December 18

Spread the love

Christmas is just a week away….still time to make a contribution to your favorite charity…..A couple of possibilities…..

Elf Angels…..providing brand new toys and gifts for Bladen County youngsters who may have no Christmas if not for Elf Angels under the direction of Debbie Heustess. Mail check to Debbie Heustess, PO Box 746, Clarkton, NC 28433.

Another worthy cause is Southeast Carolina Crossroads, a rehab center for males attempting to ‘kick’ an addiction to alcohol or drugs. Mail to Southeast Carolina Crossroads, 1086 Susie Sand Hill Road, Elizabethtown, NC, 28337 or drop off at Bladen Baptist office, 108 Mercer Mill Road, Elizabethtown, NC, 28337. It’s a non-denominational program supported by all..

There are other worthy causes…don’t have to look far…

Filing for political office ends noontime Friday….Thought I would attempt to update…the locals…..
