A note from Dick McCreight on the Christmas gifts for students at Luis Ramos Elementary School in the Allentown School District:

Thank you Asbury for adopting Ramos families for Christmas again this year.  We adopted 12 families this time--the most ever.  Gifts were delivered to the school this morning (Monday, December 16) where they were received with great enthusiasm!  We learned that among the 12 families, one had lost everything in a fire, at least one was living in 6th Street Shelter and another was homeless and was sharing a home with yet another Ramos family.  These are people in great need whose Christmas will be a little brighter thanks to your generosity.
