It could be you
The "It Could Be You" project in Tidioute was a huge success.
Clothes, shoes, bathroom items, and water were some of the items donated to the tornado victims of Joplin, MO.
Donations were dropped off at the home of Rob and Deb Genter on RT 62 Tidioute where they boxed for shipment to Erie, PA then on to Joplin.
Volunteers helping to get the items ready were Terri, Ed and Ross Fike, Reta Adams, Melissa Potts, Fran O'Hosky, Tom Heenan, Waylon Henderson, Daisy McDonald and Carmen Fedele.
This Tidioute group coordinated with the New Covenant Church of Christ in Erie to add their items with those of the Church.
Carmen Fedele and Waylon Henderson headed for Erie early Saturday morning with a full load.
Genter stated, "We sent a heck of a load to these folks. I hope that our efforts help in some small way."
Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to help the less fortunate.
There were only nine entries this year, down quite a bit from last year.
Best of Show went to Diane Cordner of Tidioute.
All afghans that were donated were divided between the American Red Cross, Veterans Administration and the RSVP program.
