KEEP OUR COUNTY WARM!
Last Monday, Home Page correspondent Morgan Koziar spoke with Mountain Valley Realty broker Vicky Constanzo who collects coats to provide to our community over the cold winter months. Vicky has been helping collect coats for the past six years and is overjoyed by all of the support she has received from the community. The coat drive is sponsored each year by The Seeds of Hope, a non-profit organization created to assist families in crisis. The goal of the organization is to provide basic needs to maintain families and aid in re-unifying families. Linda Martin, the director of community outreach of residential services also spoke to us about the details of the annual coat drive and encourages the community to spread the warmth.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE
Blood – the gift of life. These are crucial days for the local blood supply and all blood types are needed.
Community Blood Banks supply 51% of the blood for hospitals, nationally. The blood they collect stays in the area where it is collected. On Tuesday Home Page Correspondent Drew Patrick spoke with National Honor Society representative Elise Becker about the Reunion Drive that took place at the Wellsboro High School in the old high school gym from 10:30am to 2:30pm. Elise explained that the NHS is a community service organization and their goal is to look for ways to connect with other organizations to benefit the community.
Drew also speaks with Cindy Long, who has been donating blood since high school. She encourages those thinking about donating by reminding them that the benefits of giving blood outweigh the process of those giving. Lives can be saved by your contribution!
As a non-profit organization, the Community Blood Bank is dedicated to guaranteeing a safe, reliable supply of volunteer blood for patients seeking medical services in Northwest Pennsylvania and Western New York. There will be many opportunities after New Years to give blood as well. Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hospital will be holding a blood drive on Monday, January 5 – from noon until 5. A complete list of donation locations for the new year can be found at www.fourhearts.org.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
“Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”

So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven, that the shepherds said to one another, “Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.” And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them. (From the book of Luke 2:8-20)

The Wellsboro Home Page staff would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you so much for joining us and being a part of our family this past year!
