Thanks to many generous people, schools, businesses and others in the Tuscarawas Valley, they have collected approximately $10,000 to divide up between the hourly employees of Janesville Acoustics in Newcomerstown.

This will amount to about $105 for each of the 95 employees.

They would especially like to thank the people from Newcomerstown who supported the cause.

They have gotten donations as far away as the state of Washington, Georgia and others.

Checks may be picked up at the Dover-Phila Federal Credit Union at 5465 E. State Road, Newcomerstown, after Monday, Jan. 9.

Please have with you proper picture ID when you come in. If you know of other employees who do not have an email address, pass the word along to them also.

The ones who dont get this or who dont stop in, they will mail you a check for the $105.
