To the editor:

On behalf of the Newman Salvation Army Committee (bell ringing and food) and West Side Senior Awareness Committee, I want to thank all the many people who so freely volunteered their time or donated goods during the Christmas season.

That support came in many forms, through the Yolo canned food drive, by pulling tags to purchase gifts for Newman children, purchasing a tree at the Christmas tree auction, or participating in the 50-50 drawing during the community tree lighting in order to help those in need in the Newman area.

Also, a big thank you to those who just showed up at the West Side Theatre to help sort, pack and distribute the goods.
