For twenty years the Boston Township trustees have sponsored Share-A-Christmas. We would like to thank our community for making it possible to help so many of our residents. Much gratitude to the following for monetary donations: Mr. and Mrs. Paul Sergi, Michael and Liz Matusz, Anne Matusz, Tinka and Dave Short, Melissa and Charles Mcglone Farone, Bob and Shoshana Wodzisz, Elements Gallery, and the Woodridge High School Student Government.

The following provided food donations: Dan and Janice Schneider, Gretchen Gallimore, the employees of the Conservancy for the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Johnna Vineyard and the Woodridge High School students, Mike Zorena and the Saint Vincent DePaul Akron chapter, and the Peninsula Police Department.

We were again able to provide bags of soaps, personal items and paper products for each family. Our thanks to the members of the Peninsula United Methodist Church for making this possible. We received an overwhelming amount of soaps, body washes, and tooth brushes and tooth paste. Members of PUM also provided gloves, hats, scarves (many handmade) and a monetary donation. Your generosity is overwhelming. Thank you to Charlene Cooper for coordinating this effort. Thank you to the members of Mother of Sorrows Catholic Church for their giving tree items and food and non-perishables. There were an unbelievable number of gift cards as well. Each year we have been fortunate to receive many wonderful gifts from their parishioners. Thank you to Terry Lumber and the Peninsula Library for once again allowing us to place drop off boxes for food. Thank you to all of the members of our community who so generously donated at these locations. The Acme in Hudson went above and beyond to help. Their assistance is greatly appreciated. Last but not least, thank you to Charlene Cooper, Gloria Ritch, Diane Hach, Cathy Anson, and Tom Germain for helping pack all of the gifts and food. As always a big thank you to the members of Valley Fire and Rescue for their delivery services.

As a township, Share-A-Christmas is the best thing we do. We are so grateful to all who helped us make this possible.

Wishing you a happy and healthy 2018.

Amy Anderson, Jerry Ritch and Randy Bergdorf
