Providing much needed hampers and happiness

If you call the Christmas Cheer Board, it’s likely you’ll talk to Brian Quail.

For the second year in a row, Quail is volunteering as a switchboard operator — directing calls, answering questions and taking donations.

“It’s the people (here) that make volunteering worthwhile,” Quail says. “To see the dedication of all the people is just amazing.”

The care he received after injuring his left hand at work inspired Quail to start volunteering.
