Christmas Miracle ticking down to completion

    The Morgan Jayne Project is just a few families away from meeting its goal of filling its annual Christmas list, and hopes to finish up this week.
    One of the project’s annual appeals is the Christmas Miracle, and this year there were 55 families with 146 kids that are hoping to receive a Christmas gift  thanks to the project. As of Monday, there were six families with 21 kids still in need of Christmas gifts.
    “What a town,” said Fred Makowecki of the Morgan Jayne Project. “If the entire world had the same headspace as this town, the world would be a better place.”
    On Saturday, they hosted Wrapapalooza, where a crew of about 20 set to work wrapping the dozens of presents to be sent to Roatan.
    They are planning to send the gifts this week. Even if they meet their goal of filling the list, Makowecki said there are many more children waiting who can benefit from the program.
    “We would love to send more,” he said.
    The project also received some helping hands to ship the items, which is a costly affair. The staff at Hi-Way 9 Express and the company made a substantial donation to the project, as did students from Delia School and the James family. Canalta also came through with a great donation that will help ship the bulk of the items.
    Makowecki said to fill the order, those who are interested can go to his Facebook or and select a family to sponsor from the list. If they are able to have the gifts delivered to Image Crafter by Wednesday, they will be able to send them on time.
