To the Editor:

Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. We are very thankful for all that help.
Just wanted to remind all that we are getting ready to help SAD 44 families have a better Christmas with the help of many elves we have been able to help for 40 years plus. Last year we helped 136 children and their parents.

Some Fundraisers around town are at Brooks Bros. and Le Mu Eats. Please help them make a difference. As in many past years, people have been making things all year to donate, from blankets, pillowcases, scarfs, hats & mittens just to name a few, also gifts, money donations, or adopting a child. Whatever you decide to do it will be a great help.

Donations will go to Christmas for Families % Nina Wheeler, 156 Barker Rd, Bethel, ME 04217, or email We appreciate everything that comes our way and make sure we find homes for things.

If you need help or know someone that does just let us know. We try to keep it as confidential as possible. Just send a message to Nina Wheeler and she will make sure that you get an application. You can also stop by Maine Street Realty in Bethel their first door is unlocked and you will find on your left a folder with blank applications and a box to put the completed ones in.

We also have a red mailbox by our garage where you can pick up an application, fill it out, and put it in the box.


We all know that life can change anytime and unless we have walked in others’ shoes we do not know what they have to deal with so if we can help make even just a little difference then that is what we want to do.

Merry Christmas!

Nina Wheeler
