Notes of thanks

Children's Home Society of Florida's Mid-Florida Division would like to thank Community Bank & Trust for its generous support this holiday season. Bank staffers decided to forgo their annual Secret Santa activities in order to provide gifts for children in need.

At nine Community banks — in Ocala, Bellview, Gainesville and the Villages — staffers collected ornaments, each containing a child's name and Christmas wishes, then purchased the items listed on the ornaments.

In all, 20 Christmas wishes were granted. I'd like to thank bank president Hugh Dailey, the assistant vice president, trust officer, as well as CHS Mid-Florida Division board member Emily Humphreys-Beher, senior personal banker Liz Cosme and all of the Community Bank & Trust family and customers for the outstanding goal.

CHS's Mid-Florida Division, serving children and families in 18 counties, collected holiday gifts for nearly 900 local children this year, many of which are in foster care.
