NEWS & NOTES:

Christmas Giving Tree 2020…this year in an effort to keep everyone as safe as possible there will be no shopping for gifts for Leetonia School children.  Instead, all gifts will be ordered online and delivered directly to the school for distribution to the families.  We can help by making a monetary donation to help offset the costs.  Checks can be made payable to “Leetonia Schools” and will be deposited in a special account established to purchase the gifts.  There are envelopes on the table in the foyer for us to use.  The filled envelopes can be put in the Offerings box on the same table and will be forwarded to the school.  Thank you in advance for your continued generous support of this special mission to make Christmas brighter for our children. . .especially this year.
