Crossville Chronicle, Crossville, TN



Cece Woodward, Margie Kirvy and Linda Taylor were among the many volunteer elves helping to wrap presents to be delivered to children through the Christmas on the Mountain. The annual toy drive collected toys from the community and will provide gifts for 185 families and more than 500 children. Julie Vaden, coordinator for the program, said the community had been especially generous this season. PEG Broadcasting's Panama Jack added, "It's good to see the community come together. My mantra is every kid deserves a Christmas, and to see this kind of response is wonderful." School guidance counselors picked the gifts up Saturday to be distributed to families this week. Christmas on the Mountain is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. To learn more, contact Vaden at 707-8886.
