Christmas Is For Giving
Because of those who share, Christinas will be brighter and
happier for many Every Christmas season, a
Manheim farm family packs boxes with all the fixings needed for a
traditional holiday meal: turkey, corn, peas, applesauce, potatoes,
cranberry sauce, biscuits, and pie. Two other families fill large
laundry-sized bag* with practical ip jfts such as kettles, tea towels,
pot holders, cooking utensils, pfaSic ouckets, bathroom tissue,
and so forth. These generous givers do not know the families who
receive the food boxes and the gifts. Instead the boxes are distri
buted through the Expanded Food and Nutrition Educational
Program (EFNEP) adminstered through Penn State Extension.
EFNEP advisers work with low-income families on a daily basis to
teach them how use limited food resources to prepare nourishing
meals. The advisers distribute the gifts to people who will most
benefit from the items. Above, Tatyan Pereyaslav, right, receives
gifts distributed by EFNEP adviser Brenda Stallman. The farm
family, who wish to remain anonymous, said, “We know there are
hungry people who don’t have what we have. We like sharing
because God gave his greatest gift Jesus Christ to us, so in
return we give to others.” Turn to page 814 to read more about
families who believe Christmas is for “giving, not getting.”
