The Metamora Germantown Hills Community Holiday Basket Committee needs help. This past season, the community asked for 160 baskets, 40 more than last year. This increase in baskets caused expenses to increase and funds to fall short. The committee understand that this past season there was also a need to help those that lost their homes in the devastating tornado. However, they are short $800 needed to pay for the Holiday Baskets that were filled with many staple items that helped families with their holiday meals this past season. The Community Holiday Basket Fund offers area residents the opportunity to provide for a brighter holiday for those less fortunate in the community. Cash or checks can be made out to the Community Holiday Basket fund. These donations may be taken or mailed to Commerce Bank, 1 Englewood Drive, Metamora, IL 61548. They would appreciate any help given. Email Lisa Obery, chairman, at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
