Christmas donations

Each year, the residents of Southern Meadow “adopt” someone for the Holidays and provide a better season for those more needy. In the past, we have adopted a family, service members, elderly and development disabled. Again this year, we will adopt the Murphey House for Christmas gifts for the children. The Elizabeth W. Murphey School is a non-profit group home facility in Dover, Delaware that provides services for children who have issues with dependency and/or neglect. They currently house 31 youth on campus as well as provide Independent Living services to approximately 70 young people in the community. Thelma is in contact with the School and there will have tags on the tree for anyone who wishes to purchase a gift for the children residing on the Campus. The list of items is on the sign up board in the clubhouse.
