Times are tough.  A lot of people are out of work.  It's difficult to make ends meet.

All true statements.  Here's another one.

When it comes to helping each other, nobody but nobody beats the KYSS family.

A big thanks to each and every one of you for your help with this year's KYSS-Mas For Kids.  We raised just short of $22,000 to take less fortunate kids shopping.  And we know it was kind of a Catch-22 situation.  More kids in need at a time in which it was tougher for a lot of folks to give.

I hesitate to thank specific folks because I'm bound to forget some.  But I would like to thank 4G Plumbing and Heating for being our main sponsor this year.  In addition 4G gave us hundreds of dollars in auction cerificates and they wrote out a seperate check for $1,000.

Also a big thanks to our Auction Central Crew of Deb & Keith Koprivika, Katie Banks & Bill Samsoe.  And we can't forget Front Desk Debbie for all she does, our manager Shawna Batt and our digital guru Adam Slaght.  Like I said.  There are many more and you know who you are.

Please stop by KYSS at 3250 S. Reserve, Suite 200, right above Western Montana Lighting to pick up and pay for your items.  If you're writing a check, just make it out to "KYSS".  We also take Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards.  Please stop in by this Friday.

Again, thanks from all of us at KYSS.
