On Dec. 2 the

Tallmadge Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Santa at the Community Center event to usher in the holiday season.

A very large crowd of people attended to enjoy the refreshments and activities provided.

Tallmadge Good Neighbors requested that those attending the event take a donation of a food item or small gift to help make the Christmas holidays brighter for those in need.

However, just like last year, the space provided for these items was virtually empty.

How sad their are so many takers and so few givers.
