THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Rainbow House Receives Donation
Issue Date: January 17, 2018
Due to the generosity of many KS Kolbenschmidt US (KSKUS) employees for this year's Christmas Charity Drive, $2,500 was collected for the Rainbow House. The Rainbow House provided this year's Christmas Committee with the wish lists of 12 individuals. From the list provided, KSKUS created a Rainbow Tree which was placed in the machining main lunch room. Ornaments were placed on the tree which noted an item from either the wish list of a Rainbow House resident or that of the facility. In addition to the gifts that were purchased, Midge Wilke, custom machining operator, made sure that all the children had a Christmas stocking filled with surprises. Some of the wish list items included bedding, kitchen items, towels,clothes, vacuum cleaner, shoes/boots, video games/movies, toys and baby items. Two additional checks were also delivered to the Rainbow House right before Christmas, one from KSKUS and the other from KSLP, each in the amount of $1,500. Including these two checks, the total Christmas donation to the Rainbow House from KS Kolbenschmidt was $5,500.
