Thank You to everyone that submitted a nomination to BCS "Gift of Heat" promotion. We had so many really good candidates and it was a TOUGH decision to make. After considering each application we were able to narrow the choice down to 3 candidates. Every team member then cast one vote to determine the winner.
Linda is a longtime Baxter resident, a cancer survivor, single mom of three boys, (two seniors in high school and the oldest with the Army National Guard). Like many, especially this year, Linda is just trying to make ends meet, living paycheck to paycheck. After many problems with her old furnace, worried she may be without heat, wondering where the funds would come from, she wrote to us in tears. Linda stated "There's never any extra money for times when these things happen". We felt Linda and family were deserving of some help, as she, like many other Baxter residents, work hard to provide for their families and put meals on the table.
When contacted with the good news Linda exclaimed "Thank You, you have no idea what a weight this takes off me. The Baxter Community and businesses are the best around. I'm just so excited and grateful, what a wonderful Christmas Blessing!"
