TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV)– Vigo County YMCA hosted their first annual Holiday Communique Saturday to raise money for their youth programs.
Volunteers came together to make holiday cards and other small gifts out of paper to send out to the community during the holiday season.
The group raised $400 dollars to donate back to the YMCA.
Janet Royer, organizer of the Holiday Communique, said she wanted to bring some positivity to those who have had a rough year.
“I think everyone needs a little holiday cheer. It’s not been a good year for anyone. I know depression is high in the community. Events like this can just give people a chance to pass on holiday greetings for family and friends and lift someone’s spirits.”
