The evening of Christmas and seasonal music begins at 5 p.m. in the Mil- ford Middle School; admission is free, but donations are appreciat- ed. Church groups or other singers are also encouraged to sign up as participants in the concert. Those who would like to be included in the program can call Sherill or David Shockley, 424-1551. Each year at Christmas, the choir holds the concert that brings in donations to help needy fami- lies. Starting as a project of a few members of one church, the pro- gram was intended to serve five or six families. The first year, dona- tions exceeded expectations and more than a dozen families re- ceived gifts of toys and clothing, food and gift certificates. According to Franklin Fountain, the program has continued to grow and it provided holiday items for approximately 40 families last- year. As donations and the number of families applying for aid in- creased, those who organized the first community choir and concert incorporated as a nonprofit organi- zation. They also established a network with social service agen- cies and school nurses that help serve as a clearinghouse for appli- cants. In earlier years, ages and sizes of applicant family members were collected and items of clothing and toys were purchased or taken as donations for specific children and adults. With more and more individuals being served, those ac- tive in the program decided it is more efficient to give gift certifi- cates so families could get exactly what they needed. Fountain said Wal-Mart contin- ues to be a major supporter of the. benefit concert. The Diamond State Detachment of the Marine Corps League also donates toys from the annual Toys for Tots dri- ve. Fountain said: "We serve fami- lies all over Kent and Sussex counties;, we do not limit ourselves to the Milford area. In the past, we have also had choirs and singers from churches all over the area. We hope people look at this as an "organization that is here for every- one. Who ever has a need, if we have anything, we will try to help them out.
