The Brandon -Westman Christmas Cheer Board wishes to thank everyone for their generous support during the  Christmas season.  Help comes in different ways.  There are dedicated volunteers who wrap gifts and pack hampers.  People make monetary donations.  The Brandon Sun makes a large commitment to publish those names.  There are businesses who loan equipment and people who organize donation opportunities at their office or club.  Then there are the drivers who delivered the hampers so a family can enjoy the magic of Christmas.  Thank you one and all.
