It’s time for our annual Christmas Party for homeless & underprivileged children! We are a 501C3 non-profit, and Do Not Receive any Local, State or Federal Funding. Ourvery small grass-roots charity relies solely on friends like you! We’ve done this event for over 20 years!
Every Christmas, we have an awesome party for over 350 kids & a group of senior citizens. There is lots of food, generously donated from area restaurants, music, entertainment, gifts & of course Santa! We ask each child for their wishes, some ask only for socks or food. These families have no resources to provide the “luxury” of a Christmas with gifts. We try our best to give each and every child clothes, 2 toy wishes and maybe shoes. After the party, the work continues at our donated store to help families right up till Christmas day. Our store this year is at Sharon Corner’s ShoppingCenter, 4724 Sharon Rd/Suite I (across Fairview Rd from SouthPark Mall/beside Moe’s). You can drop off Monday thru Friday from 10am to 2 pm. Extended hours closer to Christmas.
Last year, with your help, we brought Christmas joy to over 1,000 and were able to help right up to the last minute. This will again be a hard year for many, as we continue to receive calls from folks in need of food and clothing, the basics.
We have a live radio broadcast on Friday, December 18th from 6-9pm with WBT 1110AM at South Meck High School. You can come by to make a donation or drop off a new bike for a child. Have a coffee and say Hi.
Volunteers needed all day to wrap gifts, decorate, and catch the Christmas spirit on Saturday, December 19th from 1:00 pm till the wee hours of the morning at SouthMecklenburg High School, 8900 Park Rd. Community service hours for students & clubs! Plan a toy or change drive, collect new shoes, or adopt a family! These children look so forward to the party, it is their Christmas, and they depend on us!
