The Mailbox Boy returns to Ryle Addition

(Continued)

This year, Wyatt will be shadowing his grandfather’s footsteps further by helping deliver packages on the morning of Christmas Eve. Wyatt said he was excited to see what happens at Cheer Fund headquarters and to deliver the boxes to families. He wasn’t thrilled at the prospect of getting up really early, but said it was worth it to be able to help.

Daily News publisher Laura Welborn said Wyatt’s donation alone will provide assistance to four complete families. His donation will purchase gifts, food and clothing vouchers for all four families. Wyatt is the perfect example of how much difference one determined person can make.

Wyatt said he plans to continue decorating mailboxes next year and encouraged his neighbors to watch for the flyers after Thanksgiving. He said next year more neighborhoods may be included as well and hopes to continue expanding his decorations and helping Cheer Fund.

Wyatt’s generosity embodies the true spirit of Christmas and the Daily News thanks him for his selfless actions and kind nature.

Anyone interested in donating to the Daily News Cheer Fund may do so via Paypal at www.cheerfund.org, coming into the Daily News office on Franklin Street, or by donating at bell ringing stations around town. Cheer Fund is still more than $30,000 short of its goal for this year. Even a small donation can make a big difference to a family. Unwrapped gifts may be dropped off at the Daily News office.
