Christmas in July
On Saturday, July 23rd, members of the Excelsior Alumni Association of Florida joined forces with other volunteers from the Kiwanis districts 24 and 25 to bring Christmas early to hundreds of economically challenged families. The event dubbed Christmas in July was held at the BB&T center with a wide spectrum of companies that sponsors the event. The main floor of the center was decorated with all the bells and whistles of Christmas. There were bounce houses, games, as well as clowns and cartoon characters that the kids had fun interacting with. And lots of food and drink. Our teams helped to put smiles on the faces of the children as we handed out knapsacks filled with clothes, shoes, toys and other goodies. A really rewarding day!
