Christmas For Kids 2016
Central Valley Masters and TNBA Bakersfield Senate paired up to raise money for underprivileged kids. It was a huge success. This past Sunday we went out to Walmart and took 14 families shopping for 36 kids. There are no words to describe the feeling you have when you get to help so many people. We spent all week searching for the right families. Most were single parents with young kids. We had all the families meet there at 1pm. We all greeted them and told them to go shopping and when they were done we would pay the bill. After they were done they all got in a line and we checked them out. We provided them with gifts, wrapping paper, bows and Christmas trees. The smiles on the parents and kids faces was worth all the hard work we put in to this event. We were all walking around smiling like we were the ones getting gifts. I want to thank everyone who helped these families with their shopping. We spent almost $7,000. Thank you to everyone who donated to this event. Without you none of this would have happened. It was a long day but worth it.
