I have been repeatedly reminded of the generosity of our community. People often reach out asking how they can help district families in need, and each year the community delivers by donating significant amounts of time, money, and effort. This year the Fairfield Christmas Store helped 153 students from 64 of Fairfield District families and an additional 41 students of 14 families outside of our district. We had many volunteers from FJSHS Cosmetology, staff, administrators, Maple City Chapel, and Mom's in Prayer helping with each part of the project. Several businesses and groups in the community donated financially including: Farmers State Bank, Veada, Assurance Property Management, KMC Controls, New Paris Phone, Township Trustee, FJSHS, and BES. I just want to shout out a very LOUD "THANK YOU" to everyone that helped and donated! We couldn't do this project without the help from all of you! I sincerely appreciate the generosity of our community!
