Randolph Rundown Pre-Christmas Flight, Open House, Eastside
Christmas in Eastside
On Saturday, December 18, The Hope of Eastside will host a free event for families in the community. Children can get a free Christmas present and take a photo with Santa Claus. The event begins at 3 p.m. at the George Washington Carver Community Enrichment Center.
Co-founder Ty Brueilly said the children of the Eastside are in desperate need of guidance and inclusion because he believes they are often overlooked.
âIn most of the events and opportunities held in our city, there is often no representation of black children,â said Brueilly. âThere is very little help from the community outside of this area, so we feel the need to step in and do something for these children now. We have to make them feel as special as they are in order to that they can grow. “
The organization strives to provide representation throughout the year, but much more during the holidays. The organization plans to represent children by having a black Santa Claus.
The organization hopes residents will donate the following items:
- Children 3-7: Books, Dolls, Building Sets and Legos, Toy Trucks and Cars, Stuffed Animals, Coloring Books, and Colored Pencils.
- Children 8 to 12 years old: books, jigsaw puzzles, jewelry, nail and craft kits, remote control cars, action figures and sports equipment.
- Children 13 and over: Books and newspapers, sports equipment, jewelry and handbags, makeup, lotion and perfume, hats, scarves and other outerwear gift cards.
