January 1, 2020 | View PDF
Alabama Gazette Publishing, LLC was very pleased to be able to again present several deserving people with $100 cash this Christmas season!
While we couldn’t give everyone who was nominated a gift, we appreciate everyone’s thoughts and times for others who deserved some extra Christmas spirit this year.
We hope everyone has a blessed and prosperous New Year!
One of the recipients this year was Linda Hood. Sadly, her home burned down during the holidays with one life lost and two burn victims. Ms. Hood is now living with three other family members in a camper the Walsboro community north of Wetumpka. A gift of $100 in cash was given to Linda by the Alabama Gazette, and Dr. Martha Poole Simmons was glad to present it to her in person.
Cindy Fanning was a surprised recipient, and very happy to be blessed this season. Her sister nominated Cindy because “she is the sweetest most unselfish person I know.” Whenever anyone needs her help, she steps forward without asking.
Gazette staff members were honored to meet Cindy, her sister and other family members when they visited the office to receive the Christmas cash.
