GETTING READYThe Marlow Samaritans Christmas gift basket giveaway was a big success said Samaritan officer Cricket Holland.
“It went great,” Holland said. “Out of all the people who signed up, only six did not show up to pick up their baskets.”
Holland credited the help of volunteers to make the giveaway a success from the firemen who stood outside to help with traffic to the high school students who helped package the goods on Friday and showed back up to help distribute them on Saturday morning.
More than 250 baskets were handed out.
“It was real good and real went smoothly,” Holland said. “All the people who picked up the baskets were really happy. We could not have done it without all of our volunteers.”
The Marlow Samaritans is a United Way Agency.
