Christmas 2016 - 2017
Toy, Clothing and Food Drive
HUE members stepped up in a big way for the at-need children in Enterprise. What began as eleven (11) children quickly swelled to sixty-three (63). These children were provided with new clothing (3 outfits each) along with a "wish list" of items, ranging from a keyboard to bicycles to swing sets. Newborns received critical items; car seats, bedding, diapers, formula - walkers and even a crib and entire layette.
Hailey Wilson, a loyal junior Hand Up member, assembled 12 elder baskets filled with socks, lotion, soaps, note-cards, tissues, band-aids, ointment and sanitizing gel. One elder was gifted with a miniature refrigerator to keep a diabetic drink supplement close at hand. New robes, nightgowns and safety socks were distributed.
Brock Moore Industries sponsored a food and toy drive. He arrived with trunk fulls of non-perishable foods and toys - toys - toys.
Christmas 2016 was challenging but we exceeded. A lot of children were afforded a very Merry Christmas.
Christmas 2017 will be a combination effort between HUE, Coffee County Family Services, Greenhill Presbyterian Church and Elite JEEP and Off-Road HUE member sponsored Brock Moore. A local franchise who has requested anonymity has been donating various children's toys, clothes and tennis shoes since late last summer in anticipation of Christmas 2017.
On December 22 all will gather behind Greenhill Presbyterian Church, set up tables, serve refreshments and distribute toys and clothing for the children. We invite everyone to join us. What a perfect opportunity to PAY IT FORWARD in your community!!
