We, at the Rising Sun Municipal Utilities, have always felt that the holidays are a time to reflect on our blessings and to share those blessings with others. This is why we are sponsoring a community donation box for the eighteenth year.
We ask each of our customers to bring in a little something to share with the less fortunate members of our community. When you come in to pay your utility bills in December please bring along an item or two for the box. If you are not our customer you are still welcome to donate and we will be very grateful for your kindness.
We started our box eighteen years ago to give people an easy location for which to drop off their donations and have been very pleased with how it has grown each year.
All donated items are dispersed to the organizations within our community so they can help the members of our community. Your past donations have helped the school to ensure every student is warm by providing hats; coats and gloves. Donations go to the Ohio County Health Department, Services from the Heart, the Free Store, and the residents of the Waters of Rising Sun, as well as several others. If you want to donate to a specific organization you can let us know where you want your item to go.
Items that are in high need are new clothing (hats, gloves, coats, sweatshirts, sweatpants, house dresses, socks, etc), paper goods (tissues, toilet tissue, paper towels), health and beauty products (lotions, shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, etc), blankets, food items, toys and other gift items. We have needs for all ages, so try to keep the seniors in mind, as well as the children.
We at the Rising Sun Municipal Utilities would like to thank you for your continuing support and thoughtful donations. Your kindness in sharing your blessings warms our hearts. Thank you all and we wish you all a bright and glorious Christmas and New Year!
