Those applying for a holiday basket are asked to bring a copy of a utility bill from their PV residence.

Delta Public Transit in PV, 215 West Paul, is also accepting donations of non-perishable food items in an annual “Stuff the Bus” drive.

The Delta drive is scheduled to continue daily through Dec. 23.

All donations are for needy residents in Garvin County.

A cast of 14 local actors re-create the Bedford Falls story of how George Bailey lost hope and miraculously rediscovered the love all around him thanks to an angel named Clarence.

The PV Arts Council show starts at 7 p.m. with doors opening at 6 p.m. for general admission seating.

Audience members are invited to dress in 1940s style as befitting the era of the story.
