Bringing Christmas to more than 60 needy families was made a little easier by shoppers at Angel's and Lauer's Super Thrift stores.

This month, the Mountain Road and Fort Smallwood Optimist clubs combined forces and launched the annual food drive at both stores. Mountain Road spokesman Frank Mathias said local shoppers donated more than $3,000 and 200 cases of food.

"We were pleased by the response and the continued generosity of the community," Mathias said. "We collected enough to deliver cases of food, meats and perishable items, plus toys for the kids, clothes, and Christmas trees to 64 families who needed the help. But we could not have accomplished this without the great support of the community and local merchants."

Coordinating the drive was Mathias and Mike Collins from the Mountain Road group, and Paul and Peggy Hayden from the Fort Smallwood organization.
