Once again the Community Holiday Basket Fund offers area residents the opportunity to provide a brighter holiday for those less fortunate in the community.

Cash donations are especially needed to purchase food items.  Checks should be made out to the Community Holiday Basket Fund.  These donations may be taken or mailed to Commerce Bank, Englewood Drive, Metamora, IL  61548.

This year’s committee is Becky Weber and Donna Cross, members of the GFWC Illinois Metamora-Germantown Hills Junior Woman’s Club, and Rev. Mike Danner from the Metamora Mennonite Church.  They are focusing on providing baskets to area residents Saturday, November 21, prior to the Thanksgiving holiday.

Anyone who may know of someone in the community who would benefit from receiving one of the food baskets should contact Becky Weber at 602 Malone Court, Metamora, IL  61548, or call 383-2319 or e-mail her at All names are kept confidential.
