Belated call to help backstretch kids at Christmas

Notified of this fine holiday charitable effort more than a month ago, I've been remiss in not giving a plug before now to the Belmont Child Care Association's annual Anna House Holiday Event.

Scheduled for Dec. 12, the day provides some 400 children of backstretch workers with the opportunity to select gifts for their family members. And one for themselves.

A flier for the event -- done as a takeoff of the ubiquitous Mastercard commercials -- lists the financial breakdown of the operation as such:

-- Presents: $7,269.
-- Wrapping paper: $317.
-- Ribbon: $168.

But being one of the people responsible for bringing a smile to a child's face on Christmas morning indeed is priceless.

Though the event is now only eight days away, I'm sure the Belmont Child Care Association would still be pleased to have your donation.
