Douglas County Kiwanis Club Joins Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglasville Police Department, Douglas County Fire Department, Douglas County School System Police Department, county and town to sponsor the 23rd Annual Kiwanis Children’s Christmas Special on December 8-9. .
This holiday project allows underprivileged children selected by school administrators and counselors from local primary schools to purchase gifts for themselves and family members.
Kiwanis Club President Trent Wilson spoke about the event recently.
“This event not only brings joy to needy children and their families, but it also goes a long way in establishing a solid foundation for current and future relationships with the community and law enforcement,” Wilson said. “Public support has allowed us to increase our reach from 35 children 20 years ago to over 140 children this year. This project is one of many projects where Kiwanians in Douglas County are working to improve the lives of children, one community at a time. But we need the participation and support of the community.
If you would like to financially support this effort, please send tax-deductible gifts to the Kiwanis Club of Douglas County, PO Box 69, Douglasville, GA 30133 or make an online investment for children at KiwanisClubOfDouglaCounty.com (look for the Children’s Christmas tab on the left)
