Santa Claus at the Montelores Early Childhood Council’s toy giveaway.

The Montelores Early Childhood Council would like to thank all involved in making our “Santa Visit Family Night and Gift Giveaway” a huge success. Although we received RSVPs for about 50 children, we served 92. Every (very patient) child went home with at least one quality book and a bag full of age appropriate toys given to them by Santa and his helpers that night.

We would like to thank: Brad Finch and the Three Rivers Foundation, The Cortez Dollar Tree and all private citizens who donated there,

Operation Homefront, Laura McHenry and the Cortez Public Library, City Market, Safeway, Carlie and Matt Cole, Pat McCoy, Vangi McCoy,

Kyleigh Shilko, Elle Bane, Justin Bane and all of the families that were so patient and kind.

Our plan for next year is to create some sort of ticketing system to streamline the process.
