Crosslines now accepting Visa, MasterCard

Monday, January 28, 2013

Crosslines is now accepting Visa and MasterCard debit and credit cards at their facility, located at 510 Cleveland in Monett.

According to MaLinda King, administrator, the move comes to make it easier for customers to pay for purchases at the store.

Starting in February, Crosslines will open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the first and third Saturdays of the month.

"This will make it easier for people who work to be able to shop at Crosslines," King said.

King went on to report a successful holiday season.

"We handed out 320 Christmas baskets this year," she said. "The boxes were much larger than in years past."

King said the food drive effort would not have been possible without the support of the community, local businesses, civic clubs and churches.

Several families were also adopted for the Christmas season by various organizations and clubs.

"I appreciate everyone who donated or volunteered to help Crosslines during this Christmas season," King said. "We were able to provide gifts for 80 families this year."

The organization served 695 families during the last quarter. Some assistance included: food, fuel and utility bills, rent, heaters, household items, photo identification, lodging, rehabilitation, clothing, baby formula and diapers, toddler and infant car seats, laundry and household cleaning supplies, prescriptions, over-the-counter treatments, eye glasses, medical equipment, work uniforms and footwear.

"This has been a very difficult holiday season for many families, locally and across the nation," King said. "No matter what the tragedy, such as the storm that hit the east coast or the school shootings in Newtown, Conn., we see members of our community come together and help each other during these difficult times.

"I count myself blessed to live in a community that works together all year long to help others," King said, "from the churches, groups and clubs that help all year long to the struggling family on a fixed income who gave all they had to help another family in need this Christmas. May God bless all for their thoughtful donations."
