The Spirit Of Christmas: Update

The Spirit Of Christmas: Update

The Spirit of Christmas provides a Thanksgiving meal and Christmas gifts, which includes shoes, clothes and gifts, to children in families that fall below the poverty line. Here in the Lake Cities area we have several events and volunteer opportunities, plus updates on events already in full swing.

Angel Tree: The Angel trees are going up and we need all of the “adoptive” families as we can get. We will have trees at Walmart Hickory Creek, Point Bank, and the Lake Dallas library.  We need churches and businesses to step up and help with donations or to adopt a family or four. photos courtesy of Suzanne Barnhart

Spirit of Christmas Fun Run Update: This event featured a 1-mile fun run and a 5k run/walk to help provide a Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas presents for underprivileged children in the Lake Cities community. The event had a spectacular turn out! We are so thankful to have our community come together to support their neighbors. Thank you to everyone involved.
