Pantex volunteers are spreading holiday cheer this week during two celebrations for local organizations. Pantexans helped residents and staff of Martha’s Home
celebrate Christmas at a party Tuesday sponsored by Consolidated Nuclear
Security, LLC (CNS). About 55 guests enjoyed food, music and family
photos. Each woman and child received a gift from Santa.
For more than 25 years, Martha’s Home has provided shelter for homeless single women and mothers with children.
The festivities will continue Thursday at the Ussery-Roan State Veterans Home Christmas party sponsored by CNS. About 300 residents, staff and their families will all enjoy food, music and family photos. Santa will present each resident a new bath robe and hand out candy canes to the children.
When asked what gift the staff would most appreciate, they said a lift to help raise bedridden residents. CNS representatives will be on hand to present the veterans home with a $3,000 donation for the purchase of the equipment.
The Amarillo facility provides long-term care to nearly 120 Texas veterans and their spouses.
