Thank you to our generous readers

The Times would like to thank all of the people who con­trib­uted to our Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund.

This was the 58th year that the people of the North­east have con­trib­uted money to the fund, which helps needy fam­il­ies dur­ing the Christ­mas sea­son.

The Times mailed more than $9,600 in gift cards to in­di­vidu­als and or­gan­iz­a­tions that help the less for­tu­nate dur­ing the hol­i­days.

The gift cards, to loc­al su­per­mar­kets and de­part­ment stores, helped people pre­pare a hol­i­day din­ner and pur­chase Christ­mas presents.

Here are the fi­nal con­trib­ut­ors to this year’s fund:

• In memory of El­len and Louise   $50

• Trust­ees Mary I. Clay Fund   $100

• The Rehr Fam­ily     $30

• An an­onym­ous donor   $10   ••
