On July 8th and 15th, we spread some cheer to kids who really needed it. Thanks to the thousands of dollars and hundreds of toys donated by our supporters, we were once again able to bring Christmas in July to the children at Duke and UNC Children’s hospitals. Led by the one and only Santa Claus, volunteers distributed toys to the sickest children in the hospitals. Christmas in July is important in that it fills a recreation and activity gap in the summer when so many volunteers, staff, and students are away.
Our board members served as Santa’s helpers during Christmas in July, collecting toys and helping spread cheer to various clinics and inpatient rooms visited. The UNC Children’s Hospital visit had former UNC basketball player/professional basketball player Jawad Williams and former NCCU lineman/current Detroit Lion’s lineman Xavier Proctor help Santa brighten up the day to families and children in critical care.
