Three Rivers College, in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club and AmeriCorps, and with the support of staff, faculty, student clubs and organizations, and donations from area businesses, provided 13 area families with Christmas essentials. Each family will receive food for Christmas dinner, a Crock Pot, table-top Christmas tree, wreath, and presents for children. Donations were given by staff, faculty, Briggs and Stratton, and Kissinger and Kirkman Investment Centre. Ozark Federal Credit Union donated Crock Pots, and Harps/10 Box donated turkeys and gift certificates for groceries for the families. Three Rivers student organizations and clubs decorated the small trees and wreaths. This is the fifth year the College has organized the Christmas donations.
