gsSCENE and Subs for Santa!
Nov 10, 2011
gsSCENE for Young Professionals has partnered with SOS Health Care, Inc. to give 100 children in need from Loris and Myrtle Beach a Christmas night to remember!
Volunteers are needed to help take kids shopping and enjoy a night of games and fun. On December 13, the evening begins at Ultimate California Pizza Game Zone on Lake Arrow Head Rd., where each child will be paired up with a volunteer. Together they will enjoy free pizza and game time.
The next stop is Christmas shopping at Walmart on Hwy 17 at Tanger Outlets. Volunteers will accompany their children on motorcoaches to Walmart where they will assist children in picking out toys and necessities using a Walmart gift card provided.
Last year over 80 volunteers were used from gsSCENE and all had wonderful things to say about the experience. In a survey given after the evening the volunteers were asked to share some of their personal stories from the night. Below are a few to share:
“There were several parts of the evening that “melted my heart” from watching my own little buddy to those around me and seeing all of the laughter & smiles the evening brought those recipients. Thank you.”
“I went to zip of his jacket when we were going to get on the bus. The jacket’s zipper was completely broken and the jacket itself was falling apart and filthy. Together at Wal-mart, we picked out a new jacket. He wanted to put it on immediately and loved it more than the toys! Brought tears to my eyes.”
“What a great way to see so many kids smile all at once.”
“It felt great to have my child say ‘this is the best night of my life’”
“I think this was a wonderful experience for the community to get together to provide a less fortunate child a Christmas and a promising future by showing them that there are people that care!”
