The Catoosa County News - - FRONT PAGE -

Each bag in­cluded a com­bi­na­tion of meal foods and treats — three boxes of mac­a­roni and cheese, three packs of Ra­men Noo­dles, eight pud­ding cups, four Jello cups, a full-size bag of pret­zels or chips and a full-size pack of cook­ies.

Pre-k stock­ings con­tained fruit gum­mies, candy canes, Kool Aid, silly string, Silly Putty, glow sticks, choco­late San­tas, glow balls and rein­deer antlers.

On de­liv­ery day, Dec. 14, chil­dren were wowed by a visit from Santa, who came along with bank rep­re­sen­ta­tives and other vol­un­teers. Some ran to him to say hello and give him a hug. Older chil­dren at the schools helped adults make one trip after an­other on a cool, driz­zly morn­ing to bring bags in­side.

Vol­un­teers in­cluded man­age­ment and staff from Com­mu­nity Na­tional Bank, North Ge­or­gia Health­care Cen­ter, Lake­view-fort Oglethorpe High School, Ca­toosa govern­ment and the com­mu­nity.
