ST. JOHNSBURY — The NEK Council on Aging (NEKCOA) recently distribute 58 holiday cheer bags filled with presents for clients.
The bags came through the generosity of several community organizations led by Paul Davis Restoration of Hardwick.
For the past eight years, the staff at Paul Davis Restoration has coordinated the acquisition of the gifts, wrapped them, and bundled up the holiday cheer bags.
The bags are distributed with the help of NEKCOA staff and volunteers.
“This community-led event is a wonderful example of neighbors caring for neighbors,” said Meg Burmeister, Executive Director of the NEKCOA. “We are so very thankful to help in the distribution of such generosity to homes in our communities.”
Burmeister said Ken and Janney Johnston were instrumental in delivering the holiday bags through their home-delivered meals network.
