Volunteers for children



Glenda Banks, a retired social worker who lives at Colson, and Glenda Brown, a Dry Fork resident who is coordinator of the Migrant Education Program for the Letcher County School System, sorted Christmas gifts in the Letcher County Tourism building on Dec. 7. Banks and Brown have organized the Tree of Hope program for the past seven years. This year at least 640 children will receive Christmas presents from the Tree of Hope program. Brown and Banks organize a list of names and what each child wants for Christmas and then churches, businesses, organizations and individuals buy specific presents that children have requested. The gifts will be distributed to children in Letcher County this week.
