Giving hearts for Warm Hands via ECR

Pictured are Sheila Angus, Kris Winkelman, Jane Hall, Kim Puzel, Allison Heiman of ECR, Kristy Johnson and Linda Minier.

Teaming up with Linda Minier, owner of Arctic Athletics, for the holidays are the Ely School’s “Lunch Ladies and Rich.”
In lieu of exchanging the typical Secret Santa gifts, the workers decided to do something more giving.
With Minier, who donated her time to craft 40 pairs of mittens and 10 outfits to be given to ECR (Ely Community Resource), the group will help children in need of warm hands.
Taking part are Kim Puzel, Sheila Angus, Kristy Johnson, Jane Hall, Kris Winkelman and Linda Minier. Absent from the photo is Rick Kovall.
The group encourages other friends, companies, groups and teams to do the same. ’Tis the season for giving.
