Madison Eagle Christmas Fund; Give Within the Community This Holiday Season

MADISON, NJ - The Madison Eagle Christmas Fund is making history. As one of the oldest community-sponsored Christmas assistance program, it is embarking on its 41st campaign.  MECF chairman Gary Ruckelshaus, a former mayor who took over the reigns three years ago, has already announced a full agenda of community involvement and giving.
Initial response to the appeal for contributions in the electric bill October bills has been, "as always outstanding," he said.  "It is giving us the seed money - and the encouragement -- that we will be able to deliver food and gifts to about one hundred Madison families, as we have in the past."
The fund, with the participation of The Chamber of Commerce and volunteer efforts of members of the Thursday Morning Club, Madison Area YMCA, local schools and churches, the Madison Ambulance Corps, and a number of private citizens,  will offer gift certificates to local merchants' shops and services,  as well as for Christmas dinner. 
The Fund is already receiving special requests for unique 'hardship cases' and is assessing the potential of this year's contributions to determine the financial availability.  Won't you help?  You may make contributions made out to: Madison Eagle Christmas,  P.O. Box 2, Madison, NJ 07940 or through online access:  All donations are tax deductible!
