TO THE EDITOR:

Each year, for the past 40 years, I have asked those of you who send out Christmas cards to remember the young people of Assurance and the James Ranch Youth Shelter.

This is such a nice and simple way to help the homeless and “at-risk” children in our program to know that they are in your thoughts and prayers.

Our kids love receiving cards, so please, when mailing out Christmas cards this year, address one to:

The Young People of Assurance Home & The James Ranch Youth Shelter, 1000 E. 18th St., Roswell, N.M., 88201.

Thank you so much for thinking about us, and we hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas.

With kindest regards,
Ron Malone
Executive Director
James Ranch Youth Shelter
