ROSCOMMON – Santa Claus, smiling faces, and happy children help make the season of Christmas merry and bright. For the past sixteen years, MFMFC has been bringing gifts to the two youngest classes of COOR.
Santa and his helpers arrived at COOR on the hill aboard the MFMFC Trolley. Santa made his way through the halls, greeting other students and staff along the way. Santa was able to visit three other classrooms and wish all those students and staff a very Merry Christmas as well.
Each child in Miss Emily and Miss Meranda’s class received a Santa hat with a coloring book, crayons, and toy. Teachers let the committee know what teaching, tactile/sensory and visual, aids they needed for their classrooms. MFMFC provides as many of those items as they are able. LEGO items, building blocks, PlayDoh, and other sensory toys were some of the teaching aids provided this year.
Funds for this event are raised through items donated and auctioned at the beginning of the MFMFC Gold Badge Auction event during the festival, as well as through cash donations.
The MFMFC COOR Christmas committee is comprised of Ed and Donna Thoma, and Calvin (Spoon) Witherspoon (Santa Claus). To donate auction items or for more information, call or text Donna Thoma at 989-858-1440.
