To the editor:

The staff and patients at the Madison State Hospital would like to thank the community for all the generous support provided over several decades.

Each year as you prepare for your joyous, holiday celebrations, you have been mindful of those not as fortunate. Businesses, churches, clubs and private individuals disperse the "spirit of Christmas" to our patients who are primarily indigent. As you graciously remember the patients this year, remember that every gift counts and is greatly appreciated. Your generosity has a profound impact on these people in need. Monetary donations can be mailed or dropped off, payable to the "Madison State Hospital Recreation Fund," 711 Green Road, Madison, IN 47250. Blessings to all of you this Christmas season!

Theresa Robinson, M.A.

Social Services Director
