We would like to thank everyone who attended the 8th annual “Gifts for Grub” toy drive dinner. This has been a tough year for many Haines residents, but the good people here still showed up with toys and donations to make Christmas better for our children. We would especially like to thank the American Legion Family for the use of their facilities and the wrapping and distribution of the many toys; Sarah Swinton and the Alaska Meat & Grocery crew for their help with food and ordering; and our “You Play Santa” raffle winners. A $100 donation each will be donated to the charities of their choice. John Carlson donated to the Salvation Army, Jenty Fowler donated to HARK, and Kami Trimble donated to Haines High School athletics. We hope to see you next year. Happy Holidays!
