12/24/2012 6:01:00 AM Kingman Letter: Thanks from the Code 3/Clothe the Kids committee
Charles Striegel with the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie No. 3744 presents a check for Code 3/Clothe the Kids to Jamie Taylor.
The Code 3/Clothe the Kids committee would like to offer a very special thank you to all of the sponsors of the program in 2012. With their generous support we were able to provide clothing and toys for over 300 children this year!
Numerous organizations combined their separate efforts into one single community charity event to help the children of need in the Kingman area. Over 100 volunteers helped shop with the children ages 5 to 14 on Dec. 8. Ages 4 and under had a separate event where they got to meet Santa and pick up their gifts at the Del E Webb Wellness Center on Dec. 12.
We also want to thank the management and staff of K-Mart and Walmart who allowed us to shop with over 200 children on Dec. 8 - and to their customers who patiently waited in line while we helped the kids shop! This is a life-changing event for most of the children and even more so for the volunteers.
The people of Kingman have huge giving hearts, which is especially evident this time of year! Thank you, everyone, for your support!
