Donations needed for annual Christmas Shopping Tour for Underprivileged Children
Nov. 16, 2010 at 5:16 a.m.
Now in its 48th year, the Victoria Jaycees' Annual Christmas Shopping Tour for Underprivileged Children is in need of donations.
Businesses and individuals are asked to sponsor children for a $50 donation per child.
Donations of less than $50 will be accepted and combined with other donations received to allow additional children to be included.
A list of children in need is compiled from local agencies and church groups that provide assistance or support to their families.
The Shopping Tour will be Tuesday, Dec. 7. Each child will be provided with supper and have the opportunity to sit on Santa's lap and receive a gift before the evening ends.
Contact the Jaycees by Friday to make a donation.
For more information on how to donate call 361-576-4300, 361-648-3841 or 361-649-6370.
