     This past Christmas holiday season, the residents of Pine Street once again went out of their way lighting up their neighborhood. For the fourth season in a row, they raised money for a good cause as part of their holiday displays. This year, Sleep in Heavenly Peace (SHP) – Jones County was the recipient of the $740 from the many people who visited Pine Street and donated toward their cause.

   SHP is a non-profit organization of volunteers, led by Nic and Heather Weers of Anamosa, who are dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering beds to children and families in need throughout Jones and Cedar counties. They “believe that a bed is a basic need for the proper physical, emotional, and mental support that a child needs. All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads.”

   From the bottom of their hearts, the Pine Street neighborhood would like to thank everyone that not only donated money, but took the time to visit their holiday displays.
