Columbus is definitely Something Good!

I have lived in Columbus for 24 years; and yet, I am constantly amazed at the generous and giving spirit of those who make up this community. Two more examples of this were highlighted on KLIR this morning. Annette Alt (State Farm) was on the air to promote her open house, which is coming up on Tuesday, December 19th from 5-8 pm at 3220 19th Street. She will be serving cookies, cider and coffee to anyone who wants to stop by, and is asking for donations of paper products for Youth For Christ (paper plates, napkins, cups, bowls, plastic silverware, toilet paper, etc.). You can also drop off donations at the office now thru Tuesday. We also talked to Gayle Bonnes from Slumberland about their program donating twin beds to children who have nothing to sleep on. On Wednesday, December 20th, volunteers will be delivering 60 beds to children in Columbus, Grand Island and Kearney, along with sheets and quilts. If you would like to volunteer to help deliver the beds, please come to Slumberland at 5 pm. They will even feed you supper! They are also looking for donations of pillows to complete the beds for these children. So kudos to Annette and Gayle, and a great big thank you to all the donors and volunteers in Columbus for proving again that the Christmas spirit is alive and well in Columbus!  - Riley
