Urban Mission boot drive a success

To the editor:

On Oct. 26, with the permission and assistance of the Wintersville Police Department, Manfred’s hosted a boot drive to benefit the Urban Mission. Also on that day, the following locations let us tag: FirstChoice America Federal Credit Union, A&B Pharmacy, Wal-Mart, Convenient and Smokey’s.

The day was a huge success. It was the largest dollar amount in five years.

The day was made possible by student volunteers from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, under the direction of Jerry Jo Gilham and the many friends, customers and staff members of Manfred’s.

Many thanks to all who made the day possible, and special thanks to all those who donated so generously.
