COSHOCTON -- The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County is conducting the annual Pearl Valley Cheese Basket fundraiser. Just in time for Christmas, each basket is filled with three packages of Pearl Valley Cheese (Colby, Marble, and Swiss) and an assortment of biscotti, tea, hot chocolate, and candies.

Each basket is wrapped in cellophane with a lovely holiday bow. Cost per basket is $25.

Pickup is scheduled for Dec. 18. However, other arrangements for pick-up can be made with advance notice. Delivery is available for purchases of 10 or more to one location. Customers are encouraged to place their orders by calling the office at 740-623-8110. All orders must be received by Dec. 3.

Proceeds from this fundraiser directly support the mentoring programs offered to children throughout Coshocton County. Anyone interested in purchasing a cheese basket, volunteering, learning more about or enrolling in the programs offered by The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County, or making a tax deductible contribution is encouraged to call Executive Director Sheila Mayse at 740-623-8110.

The Mentoring Center of Coshocton County is a United Way member agency.
