Gallatin Rotary Club Seeks Shoppers for Christmas for Kids Event on December 14
The Gallatin Rotary Club is holding our annual Christmas for Kids event on Saturday, December 14, and we need your help shopping and wrapping presents.
The event has grown each year for almost 20 years; next month we will take around 130 less fortunate school-aged children shopping and send them home with not only gifts for them and their families, but a grocery cart overflowing with food and paper products so their families can have the Christmas every child deserves.
We make it easy on you — just come to Walmart and we will assign you a child and give you their clothing and shoe sizes as well as restrictions on what can be bought (no video games, for example). You take them shopping for clothes and toys with the allotted money, bring the gifts to our wrapping area, then pick up a grocery cart full of food for their family.
The only hard part is we need you to be there at 6:00 am.
Yes, that’s early, but the experience is really moving — to see the joy of the kids and the appreciation of the parents/guardians to give them all a Christmas they would not otherwise have is a heartwarming experience which will add to your own Christmas spirit and memories.
We know of one woman who brought her two teenage children to be shoppers for the first time last year and now none of them can even imagine missing the event ever again. She is even inviting her church members to participate this year; that is how much she and her children thought of this fantastic event.
Just an hour or so of your time can make a huge difference in the lives of several others who live in the same city in which you do.
If you have any questions, please contact us on our Facebook page (you will find a convenient link at the bottom right sidebar to this website) and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you, and we appreciate your help in making this Christmas a special one for everyone in this city! Thank you!
