The annual Christmas in July event for SouthShore area children, held on Saturday, July 13, involved multiple area nonprofits and high school students to coordinate this huge, successful event. Over 100 kids of all ages and their parents came to celebrate an early Christmas enjoying games, crafts, and reading activities, as well as receiving gifts of food, clothing, shoes, and school backpacks filled with supplies. Campaign Against Human Trafficking (CAHT) participated by reading a classic story and passing out chapter books. Students from Lennard and East Bay High Schools’ Key Clubs were guides, moving children from one activity to another. The Kiwanis Club and United Methodist Church were the key organizers, and the Sun City Center Interfaith Council provided funding for this special Christmas giving experience.
