Rehoboth Aid Society accepting donations The Rehoboth Aid Society is accepting donations of canned goods and miscellaneous food items at the Rehoboth Beach Con- vention Center to help needy fam- ilies in the area. Anyone wishing to make finan- cial donations should make checks payable to the Rehoboth Aid Society and deliver them to Bonnie Futcher at the Rehoboth Beach Plaza Mellon Bank branch, or to John L. Brown, c/o Re- hoboth Beach Convention Center. All gifts are tax deductible. The Rehoboth Aid Society needs at least $7,000 to prepare food baskets. Last year, over 190 families were given holiday bas- kets filled with turkey, chicken, duck or pork shoulder, including potatoes, onions, stuffing, cran- berry sauce and canned goods. The baskets are filled according to the size of the family and deliv- ered on Dec. 23-24. This holiday drive is the only source of income for this organi- zation, which has been helping families since 1966. Through the generosity of the community, families in need are helped throughout the year with miscella- neous needs, medical bills, heat- ing and electric bills. More than 200 families were assisted last yearby the Rehoboth Aid Society, a non-profit organization.
