I don't normally post to this board, but do lurk more than one might think.

I did contribute to last year's project, and was looking forward to this year's endeavor when education and literacy were being considered.

If I may offer my humble observation, there are alot of Elves out there who are getting all enthusiastic about this project!

That is tremendous!

However, I feel we have lost our focus re:education/literacy.

During normal business hours, I lurk from work. Please don't tell my employer. If you do, I may be next year's project! Anyway, Jeff posted this afternoon:"They don't need backpacks!"

My suggestion is this: Jeff, talk to that person from the school you have been in contact with, and ask about their needs re: education/literacy.

Sports equipment is fine, but I know there are some fellow Fools who are more interested in the education/literacy side of the issue.

All the suggestions from you fellow Elves have great merit, I am not down playing that. I am just trying to re-focus the group on the needs of Morgantown, as stated by Uncle Jeffy.

Jeff, I would imagine that you are overwhelmed with the response you have been getting. Sorry I can not be of more assistance from this end, but like you, I am balancing a full time job also.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, and our fellow Elves.

May God bless each and all of us!
