To the Editor:

I would like to give my thanks and appreciation to all the staff at the LEAAP Center.

You ladies went above and beyond to put a smile on our children's faces this Christmas year.

It's not just about the presents our children received, but for the gift of an education.

I cannot express how grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to go back to school.

The literacy program is awesome. It gives parents the chance to obtain their GED, and while we are learning our children are too.

Not to mention they are spoiled with lots of attention, hugs and kisses.

I would also like to thank the courthouse for the gloves to keep our children's hands warm this year.

And to the fire department for the bikes our children received.

And to all the others that donated gifts to our children this year.

Thank you to all who believed in me and helped me get to where I am today.

What more could I be grateful for this year?

Ashley Harrington,
