Letter: Love INC thankful for support of Christmas event
By Brian Frodermann, Executive Director, Love INC of Worthington
I’d like to offer a big thank you to all of those who participated in Love INC of Worthington’s third annual Christmas Tree Forest.
Thank you to the 31 local businesses and organizations for sponsoring and decorating such beautiful trees. Thank you to Sylvia Andersen, Lois Gruis and the many piano students for providing the music. Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped decorate the forest, serve refreshments and clean up.
Thank you to Thrivent Financial for providing $500 matching funds. Thank you to First United Methodist Church for their hospitality. And thank you to the more than 500 visitors who braved the weather and voted for their favorite trees by making donations totaling $3,324.97. With the matching funds from Thrivent Financial, we received a total of $3,824.97 to help local individuals and families in need through the ministry of Love INC.
We’d also like to congratulate the decorated tree winners, as determined by viewer’s donations. First place was awarded to Nobles County Library (Season’s Readings), second place was awarded to Worthington Christian School (Grow in Christ), and third place was awarded to Jay’s Electric (“Motor” On). Congratulations!
Again, thank you to everyone involved in making this a successful event. May God bless each and every one of you throughout the new year.
