Spread Your Joy in “Share-idan” This Season
The people of Sheridan are kind and generous all year-round, but during the holiday season, the spirit of sharing in our community is truly something to behold. While we all enjoy spending time with family and friends, giving our time to help our community and our neighbors is a priority, too. The Bank of Sheridan is proud to sponsor and participate in the following programs at this time of the year:
Encourages donors to provide financial support to fund scholarships to over 2,000 are kids to take part in YMCA memberships, programs, and camps.
Thousands of residents participate in the Main Street stroll for shopping, food, and Christmas cheer. Join in the fun on Friday, Nov. 29, from 4 – 8 p.m. Hundreds of local businesses offer great deals to kick-off your holiday shopping season right. Stop by the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce to get your “Stroll” buttons, each numbered for drawings offering chances to win prizes at local stores and “Chamber Bucks” worth anywhere between $100 and $1,000 good at numerous businesses. Ride on the Sheridan Trolley, take ahay or mini-train rides, and see Santa Claus!
Every December the Sheridan County community gives back in a big way with this event that brings the community together to share stories, laughter, food, and the Christmas spirit.A Traditional Holiday Dinner is prepared for all Sheridan County residents to enjoy free of charge at the Sheridan Holiday Inn at 6pm Sunday, December 8th. The dinner feeds thousands of people every year and is run on a completely volunteer basis. The event also provides hundreds of food baskets and gift bags for children, the disabled and elderly, and families in need. This event provides a wonderful opportunity for our community to connect during the season.
This program helps people who have fallen on temporary hard times such as Illness, death in the family, sudden unemployment who would most likely just resign themselves to a small or no Christmas. You can submit a wish for someone you know or submit for your own family to be helped this holiday season through the generosity of Sheridan businesses and individuals.
Martinizing Dry Cleaning and The Salvation Army have again teamed up to collect coats for those in need. Local residents are asked to donate new or gently used jackets and coats to Martinizing Dry Cleaning, which will then clean and donate them to The Salvation Army for distribution to the community. Martinizing Dry Cleaning, located at 1360 Sugarland Drive, will collect coats through the end of November.
These are just a few great ways you can connect with your community and give back this season. We’d love to hear how you and your family spread the joy during the holidays in the comment below!
