Presbyterian Women gift $200

Staff report

There are four more gifts to the Empty Stocking Fund to report today, adding a cool $500 to its total and pushing it to a total of $4,850.

All four gifts will be matched by $50 from an anonymous benefactor.

The largest gift today comes from the Fairmont Presbyterian Women, and there are three $100 gifts, two made in memory or a loved one, and another from Carey and Joanna Read, who we can always depend on.

Checks can be mailed to Empty Stocking Fund, 2175 Roberts Ave., Lumberton, N.C., 28358, or a donation can be delivered in person. As in the past, we will publish photographs with gifts of $500 or more when that request is made. To give yourself the best chance of that photograph appearing on page 1A, get your donation in early.

The vouchers can be redeemed at Roses, either the Lumberton store or the one in Fairmont. We will announce as soon as possible the number of children deemed eligible to receive vouchers.
