Christian Center’s still has 200 names for its ‘Christmas Gift Drive’

The Christian Center of Park City is once again coordinating community gift donations for needy children and families in Summit County. The center has more than 500 qualifying names of youngsters, including ages and sizes. They have come from Head Start, Valley Mental Health, school counselors and the Community Food Pantry program.

Families are in need of toys or clothing for ages newborn to 14 years old. Linda Sasser of the Christian Center said there are still 200 names that need to be chosen. Here’s how it works:

Call Linda Sasser at the Christian Center at 649-2260 to request a child’s or children’s names. If no one answers, leave a message. With your own child or family, gather and wrap the items you wish to donate. Include a personal note of Christmas greeting. Bring your wrapped present (number-identified or gift-identified) to the Christian Center at 1100 Iron Horse Drive any day before Dec. 15, which is the deadline. Distribution day is Tuesday, Dec. 18, should any locals wish to attend the giveaway.

Help make this Christmas just a bit more special for a family or child in need! For more information, call Linda at the Park City Christian Center at 649-2260. Parkites reminded to look for Economic Census forms

In December, more than 4 million American businesses, including 1,100 businesses in Summit County, will receive 2007 Economic Census forms. Forms go out to all but the very smallest of businesses for this tally, which is done once every five years, according to the Park City Chamber/Bureau.

The forms ask for basic information including a person’s location, employment, payroll, and sales by type of product or service. Businesses that receive a form are required by law to respond by Feb. 12, 2008.

Businesses, communities, and governments use Economic Census data for planning and market development, and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke has called this census "indispensable to understanding America’s economy." Statistics are published for more than a thousand industries as well as for states, counties, cities and metropolitan areas. Visit for more information.

Park City Chamber/Bureau to host new member breakfast

If your business joined the Chamber/Bureau within the last year and you have not attended one of the Chamber/Bureau’s quarterly New Member Orientation Breakfasts, the next one will be held Thursday, Dec. 6, at The Stein Eriksen Lodge.

There is no charge for the breakfast. There will be an orientation presentation during the 90-minute breakfast, and time for everyone to introduce their businesses to the others present. Generally, the Chamber/Bureau has about 30 to 40 people at the new member breakfasts. The Chamber encourages businesses to bring brochures and business cards to hand out to other businesses.
