Pantexans Spread Twice the Holiday Cheer

December 17, 2014
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.
