Christmas tree ready for gifts

Marquette Mining Journal customer service representative Susan Deloria rearranges the gifts that have been coming in the Journal office as part of the Cheer Club. The club is joint effort between the Mining Journal and the Salvation Army to provide presents to needy families for the holidays. Unwrapped toys, including gift cards for the hard-to-buy early-teen set, can be dropped off at the Mining Journal’s Marquette and Ishpeming offices, the Marquette and Ishpeming Salvation Armies, Marquette Township Hal, ACE Hardware in Gwinn and Bell Hospital in Ishpeming.
