Thumbs up to all the local
organizers, contributors and volunteers who helped make the holidays bright for those less fortunate this year. Merchants who collected for various causes, and students and staff at Hudson Schools and Western Reserve Academy, in particular, deserve praise for all their efforts.
Hudson students made the season merrier for senior citizens by filling gift baskets with food and other treats and delivering them to seniors Dec. 20. Members of the Hudson football team and other community volunteers put smiles on children's faces during their visit to the Boys and Girls Club of Cleveland Dec. 27. WRA donated 277 toys to the annual Marine Corps' Toys for Tots program in December.
These examples are only a sampling of the generosity shown by the schools and the community. The holiday season was brighter for us all thanks to your inspiration.
