On behalf of the Matt Patterson Memorial Toy Drive, we would like to thank the many people who donated toys or volunteered in any way.
This year, again, was a very successful year. Many children were assisted at Christmas with clothing and toys because of the generosity of so many people.
A big thank you to our local supporters: Denise Queen Vance, Josie Curry, American Hydraulics, Logan Middle School, Jackie Tomblin and The Coalfield Jamboree, Frito Lay, Abundant Life Worship Center, Mt. Carmel Freewill Baptist Church and Kitchen Freewill Baptist Church.
Special thanks to WVOW Radio's one and only Dave Allen, and Erin Williamson and Bill France for the benefit they produced at the Coalfield Jamboree with the dynamic Daddy Rabbit Band. Many thanks to the band members for donating their time and talent for a great night of music that everyone enjoyed.
Many thanks to our friends and family that bind together to make this a great event. To Matt's cousins, nieces and nephew, thanks for your hard work.
With the dedication of many, including Vicki Zeto, Donetta Rainwater and Tanna Epperhart, the Logan Middle School faculty and students, who partnered with us this year, along with Mike Browning and The Logan Banner, this program was a huge success.
Thank you to everyone who helped in any way to keep Matt's memory more alive.
The family of Matt Patterson
