Roundup, Brown Santa to deliver

Two programs of Christmas cheer for the needy will deliver during the next week.

Delivery date for Christmas Roundup is Tuesday (Dec. 20) but a big weekend of work, all by volunteers, comes first.

We will need volunteers for the huge tasks of sacking, sorting and delivery,” King said.

The Knights of Columbus Hall will be open from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday to accept donations. It will open at 9 a.m. Monday for sacking, sorting and filling boxes.

And volunteers will be needed all day Tuesday for delivery.

Roundup Volunteers did not have to send out letters, as originally feared, turning down applicants due to a lack of funds ve only half the funds needed.

BROWN SANTA—Delivery date for the Milam County Sheriff’s Department’s Brown Santa program is Monday.

But those who have signed up for the program can also pick up toys at the Milam County Sheriff’s Department from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, according to Wynema Adams, executive administrative assistant.
