In the end, it’s all about the kids. So many children from schools all around Sumner and Wilson counties are benefited from Christmas 4 Kids’ annual celebration and shopping spree. Becky Siever, Principal of West Elementary states what C4K has done for their school, “Christmas 4 Kids has been a blessing for our school. The look on our students’ faces as the bus drove in our parking lot to take them on a shopping trip and dinner was priceless! We are truly grateful for this organization. The memories cultivated will be life-long!”
Christmas 4 Kids (a division of Christmas For Kids, Inc.), a not-for-profit organization that has been in existence for over 27 years providing many children each year, with their very own Christmas shopping spree. The funds generated by this golf tournament, the annual Charlie Daniels & Friends Concert in November, and the Tour Bus Show/Artist Meet and Greet event in December are used to give more than 400 children from 30 different schools in Sumner and Wilson counties a day-long shopping excursion, and hopefully, a Christmas they’ll remember for years to come.
