Santa Fund tops $145,000 tar­get

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS -

The North Bay Santa Fund sur­passed its $145,000 goal by nearly $5,000.

“It’s mind-bog­gling,” says cochair­man Lach­lan Mclachlan.

“We had less than 50 per cent of our goal with less than seven days to go. I was cer­tainly wor­ried,” he ad­mits. “This was ac­tu­ally the first year that I re­ally thought we would come up short. I was con­fi­dent we could raise $120,000, but wasn’t too sure how much after that.”

The com­mu­nity has re­sponded to the call for the past 71 years, en­sur­ing no fam­ily goes with­out dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son.

“I’m so ap­pre­cia­tive of the North Bay com­mu­nity, school chil­dren, news­pa­per car­ri­ers, busi­nesses, churches and all of the vol­un­teers who stepped up to help. It truly warms my heart,” Mclachlan says.
