Help House enjoys blessed Christmas season

Everyone who visits Help House or volunteers has been so blessed this Christmas season by all of the generous donations dropped off for the food pantry and Christmas store.

We would like to give special recognition to the Girl Scouts of Troop 30158, in Lyndon, for the food and non-food items they collected, as well as toys for other children in the area. Thank you to troop leaders Diana Forkenbrock and Kayla Rose, and Girl Scouts, Alexandra, Cassidy, Ellie, Maizy, Destinee, Dariana, and Lilly.

Also, special thanks to Osage County Sheriff Chris Wells, first responders and law enforcement officers from all of the Osage County agencies, the Kansas State Highway Patrol, the businesses in Osage County that had collection boxes for the toy drive, and everyone who bought and donated the hundreds of new toys. Many families were able to give their children and grandchildren a wonderful Christmas because of your generosity.

Prom shop

The prom shop will be Jan. 14 to Jan. 16, at Burlingame. We have over 90 beautiful gowns for girls to shop from. All have been cleaned free of charge by Ted and Shirl Ammerman, of Royal Cleaners, Ottawa. This was such a generous donation from them. So if you are looking for cleaners, they do a great job.

The prom shop will be located in the building just west of the Burlingame Library. Hours will be 3:30-6:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15; and 1:30-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 16. All dresses are free to any girls living in the Osage County area. (See related story: Help House schedules prom shop dates for new year).

Help House open after holiday break

Help House will be open after the holidays on Jan. 4, 2022.

Wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
