‘Share the Spirit’ of Christmas by helping neighbors

CLAREMORE — With less than two weeks until the Share the Spirit deadline, donations stand at the $4,525 mark — well below the $22,000 goal.

Share the Spirit helps our neighbors in need by providing a holiday feast for families who could use a little joy in the midst of difficult circumstances.
Baskets include a turkey, dressing mix, fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, bread and dessert.
Share the Spirit purchases food from Rogers County supermarkets to be distributed only to Rogers County families.
Please send your tax-deductible donation to Share the Spirit, P.O. Box 248, Claremore, OK 74018 or drop it by the Progress during business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Progress is also accepting canned goods.
