Edna Fischer, chairperson for the Delphos Community Christmas Project acknowledges it would not be possible to continue this 31-year project without the generosity and hard work given by those who volunteer to help.Requests for help are carefully screened to be sure they qualify.Shoppers volunteer their time to fill the requested items.And local high school students give of their time to deliver the Christmas goodies."We make a donation to the St. Vincent de Paul Society to prepare the food baskets.I rely on Ken Grothous from the Optimists to take care of the Angel Tree donations and the bicycles.And high school students from the Jefferson National Honor Society and St. John's Religion class will give their time on Dec. 20 to deliver all these items," Fischer said.The Christmas Project, which was founded 31 years ago by the late Marie Dorman, has grown in size and requests over the years.Fischer said there are 105 requests this year and some are from the elderly wishing for food baskets.Some individuals or organizations contact Fischer wanting to "adopt" a family for Christmas.She asks that those who haven't notified her of their intentions to contact her so there are no duplications of gifts.Those who still want to make a donation to the Delphos Community Christmas Project can still do so by sending it in care of General Delivery, Delphos, or by contacting Fischer.
