Allen & Lela Beachy A Gift of Cheer

Allen Beachy and his wife, Lela, of Lincoln DE, are among the longtime repeat helpers, having done this for about 16 or 17 years. Their family has a big get-together at Thanksgiving, and so the Beachys have Christmas to themselves. So they share it with others. “Some people are just so glad to see you,” said Allen Beachy, 74. “It’s in the spirit of Christmas, really.” Elizabeth Walls, at left, helps volunteers Melvin and Carolyn Wissinger, of Lewes, load up with gifts and meals for delivery to homebound senior citizens.
