The United Methodist Church of SCC, in partnership with The Kiwanis Club, hosted the Third Annual Christmas in July event to benefit Southshore area children on Saturday, July 13 in the LEC Hall.   

Approximately 200 kids and their parents, came to celebrate an early Christmas, enjoying various games, crafts, face painting, reading activities, as well as receiving a delicious lunch, and gifts of food, clothing, shoes and school backpacks filled with supplies. An added surprise was a shopping bag filled with Christmas dinner with all the fixings. 

Campaign against Human Trafficking (CAHT) participated, by reading a classic story, Three Trees, to groups of children and handing out a free book to each one. Students from Lennard and East Bay High Schools’ Key Clubs were the guides, moving children from one activity to another.  Their parents enjoyed making a craft of their own. The Sun City Center Interfaith Council provided funding for this special Christmas giving experience.

The organizers would like to thank the many volunteers from multiple community groups who helped make this day possible.
