Thank you, readers, for your generosity

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.

The 71st annual Eleanor Smylie Community Fund drive is over, and our readers have opened their hearts again to help needy people in the Northeast.

In all, reader contributions helped more than 100 individuals and families this holiday season.
