I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to the community of Winona for the overwhelming response to the Dan Corcoran House article. You truly understand the meaning of Christmas. Thanks to your donations, financial contributions, and time, we were able to provide dinner and gifts for over 30 individuals who might otherwise have gone without. I wish I could share the look on the children's faces with you, when Santa came down the stairs (he couldn't find the chimney) with a sack full of presents. So many presents, in fact, that we had to make three more trips to his sleigh!
I also want to take a moment to thank the volunteers at the Dan Corcoran House for orchestrating the event with us. To Adam Krahn and Winona Post for the outstanding article. Last and certainly not least, to my friends who gave up their time to help put the whole thing together.
