Every year, the residents in conjunction with their Men's Club, raise money for local school children. The community uses the money they raise to purchase $100 gift cards from Boscov's Department Store, which in turn-- matches 15% of the purchase. Residents and the members of the Men's Club then take the gift cards to an EHT public school, where the Principal distributes them to the most needy children of the school!

This year students Swift Elementary School of EHT were the ones who were granted Christmas wishes to those in need. In totally, the community raised $6,100, which means that they'll be able to purchase 70 gift cards!

The generosity of this community is heartwarming and is a wonderful example of how a small group of people can come together and make a BIG difference in the lives of local children.
