Director Stabile advised the Board that there were no new requests for expenditures from County Hospitalization. However, last month the Board approved an expenditure that was inadvertently taken from Luce County. Therefore, the correct balance for County Hospitalization Funds should be $302.95. The Bookkeeper will be making this correction so that is properly reflected for next month.

Jack Kibble inquired as to whether or not we had a list of families that were in special need of donations during the Christmas Holidays. Discussion was held regarding who heads up the Toy Drive in Chippewa County and what is being done locally, by DHS and other entities that we partner with to meet the needs of our families for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Director Stabile also advised that there is a significant food and fundraiser taking place by staff, here in the building to put together Thanksgiving Baskets, as well. Jennifer Dunton is our Community Resource Coordinator and does a very good job coordinating and working toward these types of efforts. If anyone has questions or would like to make personal donations Jennifer will be happy to assist you.
