Earlier this year, we did something we’ve never done before – we asked each guest who made a purchase at Christmas Place if they would donate $1 to a local organization which we support, the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home. Located in Sevier County since 1949, this charitable outreach of the Church of God has provided residential care to countless at-risk children and teens over the past 60+ years. What a tremendous, positive impact they have had on the lives of the children and youth of our community. It has been a blessing to our staff, and we hope to our customers, to contribute to the success of The Home, as they call themselves.
Today, we had the honor of presenting a check in the amount of (Ta-Da!) $7,037 to the Cherish the Child Foundation, which supports The Home!
And the best part is, for this donation, it was ALL YOU – our amazing customers! Thank you for your generous contributions, $1 at a time! You are directly impacting the future of children in Sevier County.
Soon you’ll see “Cherish the Child Foundation for the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home” on the jars we keep at each register, as we continue to direct a portion of our community involvement to giving to this terrific cause.
This is the way we like to start the run up to The BiG Day. Please feel free to join our staff in giving yourselves a great big round of applause! YOU DID THIS FOR THE CHILDREN!
