December 5, 2018 - Thank you to Xi Alpha Delta Rho Sorority for their very generous donation to Center First United Methodist Church Lucretia's Christmas Wish program that sponsors a program each Christmas for students around the county.
Each year over 100 students from county schools are invited to the program to select a gift for their mom and dad. It was the idea of beloved FUMC member Lucretia Bussey to give these students the opportunity to learn the joy of giving and she sponsored a similar program in area schools. FUMC adopted the program and named it in her honor and now memory. In addition to choosing gifts for their parents, students also can chose a small gift for themselves. It truly is a joyous occasion.
In addition to the money donated by Xi Alpha Delta Rho, members of the sorority also act as Santa's helpers and put the gifts in Christmas bags lined with tissue paper. What a blessing the ladies of Xi Alpha Delta Rho are for helping with this special project. They make Christmas very special for these students.
