The Rotary Club of Three Creeks and Santa's Posse have enjoyed a seven-year partnership that's included toy collections, financial donations, volunteerism to wrap gifts, pack bags and deliver gifts across Clark County over the years.
This year, the club stepped up its efforts even more.
By virtue of a matching grant from Rotary District 5100, and $2,500 of the Rotary Club of Three Creeks Foundation, the club delivered a total of $5,000 worth of toys to Santa's Posse on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
Three Creekers Sue Simon and Wendy Wright spearheaded the delivery of gifts to Clark County Sheriff John Horch at the Clark County Events Center.
"Many thanks go out to Sue, Wendy and to Brian Heimbigner - who wrote the grant," said Club President Kinsey Dhoot. "It makes me and the other fabulous members of our club to be a part of helping make sure kids across Clark County get toys at Christmas.
"Our club has a long history of support for Santa's Posse, and this year we were able to do just a little bit more."
Dhoot also thanked Three Creeks member Nancy Docekal who chairs the grants committee for Rotary District 5100 and helped approve the club's grant proposal to maximize giving to Santa's Posse.
