Edmonson Voice Report:
The Edmonson County Family Resource/Youth Services Center and Community Education are gearing up for this year's Affordable Christmas events that are scheduled to kick off in a couple weeks.
Affordable Christmas is a new and improved version of the county's popular "Angel Tree" program that benefits dozens of Edmonson County students during the Christmas season. The program allows parents and guardians that need a helping hand during the holidays to purchase gifts and necessities for their children.
The first event "Stuff The Sleigh," is scheduled to take place on Friday, November 13th, at the old Sportsman's Grill location on Main Street in Brownsville, and it set to run from 9AM to 4PM. It's designed to work similarly to the annual "Cram the Cruiser" events the organizations hold. It's purpose is to get a jump start on their much-needed items.
"Someone came up with this great idea at a recent leadership meeting," said Alicia Edwards, Family Resource Center Coordinator for Kyrock and South Edmonson Elementary Schools. "This will be a drive-thru event where we'll have a big sleigh there to put all of the donations we receive and hopefully overload it!"
The annual Affordable Christmas shopping event is scheduled for Saturday, December 5th. It will work much like last year's event with safety measures put in place as a result of COVID.
"While we already have a few items in surplus from last year we will need quite a lot to make it happen again," Edwards said. "We will be serving 150-175 kids, ages 0 to 18. We need gifts in the 10 to 30 dollar range. Donations can be an item or monetary.
The group has started an Amazon wish list where donors can simply choose and purchase items directly from Amazon that can be shipped to the organization which can be found here.

Darren Doyle, story:
The Santa’s Helping Hands Benefit and Auction scheduled for Saturday, November 7, 2020 has officially been moved to the Edmonson County High School gym.
"We feel this would help with social distancing due to the extra room and seating," said event coordinator Mark Wardlow. "We are encouraging face coverings to be worn. Temperatures will be taken at the door for safety precautions. Hand sanitizer will be provided. All items will be sanitized before the auction. Face masks will be provided if you do not have one. We are doing everything we can to keep everyone safe. Due to our current circumstances, our typical meal will be altered. This year there will be hot dogs, chips, and drinks provided free of charge."
Wardlow said that SHH, Inc., is hoping that ECHS will be the permanent site for the group's auctions in the future.
"We're very excited about this location," he said. "We'd like to publicly thank Superintendent Brian Alexander, Principal Jonathan Williams for generously offering the space for this year and years to come. Brian and Jonathan were both happy to assist as a result of what Santa’s Helping Hands provides to students and families in Edmonson County."
Wardlow said planning their benefit events this year has been difficult due to the pandemic and the organization has faced it's share of challenges; however, they still look forward to a safe, successful auction on Saturday that will continue to provide aid to Edmonson Countians who need it most.
"This has been a tough year for everyone. We know there are likely more in need this year than ever before. We really need your support in helping others during these trying times. We have a lot of great items this year that can be viewed on Santa’s Helping Hands INC Facebook page. Please help us make this a Merry Christmas for our fellow Edmonson Countians. We hope to see you there! If you have any questions about this event, feel free to call us at 270-991-2972."
