The countdown to Christmas has begun! To celebrate this most joyous season, The Wellspring would like to invite our friends and neighbors to join us at our annual Christmas Tree Lighting event on Tuesday, November 28. The festivities begin with a chili cook-off and music at 5:30 p.m., Patriot Square in Winnsboro.
You can help judge the chili cook-off, and the kids can get their faces painted for free! There will also be singing and other entertainment, warm drinks and sweet treats followed by the grand countdown to the lighting of the Community Christmas Tree and Cards.
Unable attend the event on Tuesday, November 28? You can still take part. Share the spirit of the season by sponsoring a light on the community Christmas tree to honor or remember a loved one.
For each sponsored light, your name and the name of the person you are honoring or remembered will be placed in The Franklin Sun, and those honored will receive a personal card announcing your gift. An ornament with your loved one’s name will be made and placed on The Wellspring’s tree at 303 Prairie Street in Winnsboro.
Your gift will mean so much to those you want to honor and remember, because you are helping to provide housing, to buy clothes and food, and to meet other basic needs for families fleeing domestic violence.
Thank you to our 2017 sponsors!
