Thanksgiving is officially over, meaning that it's the proper time to start Christmas preparations. While you set up your Christmas decorations and buy presents for your friends and family, take a minute to reflect on those who are not fortunate enough to be able to celebrate Christmas the way that we do.
Our district project, the Boys and Girls Homes of North Carolina, takes in children who have been abused and neglected and provides them a loving and caring environment where they can get back on their feet. One of the ways the Carolinas District supports this project is through raising money for Christmas for Children, which the Boys and Girls Homes uses to give a wonderful Christmas to the children it takes care of.
If each club in the district raises $100 for Christmas for Children this year, then we can be certain that the Boys and Girls Homes will be able to provide a wonderful Christmas for children who may or may not have been able to celebrate it before. Please make this your goal - if we all reach this amount, we can raise a large amount together!
Checks should be made out to Boys and Girls Homes and mailed to the following address:

Please send your donations by December 10th. If your club cannot make this deadline, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work it out with you.
