Christmas Is For Kids - WKLH

I gave myself an early Christmas gift this year. I took a 1/2 day off work in order to volunteer at Christmas Is For Kids a party sponsored by WLKH my favorite local radios station. .They do have streaming programing on their website if you want to listen. This Christmas event gives a wonderful Christmas meal, a sack of toys, and a visit to Santa to underprivileged kids in the Milwaukee area. WKLH has been doing this for 28 years and has over 4000 people each year. I had a wonderful time.
I did various thing throughout the afternoon. I assembled & lined cardboard trash cans, was the door guardian, greeted people & directed them to the food, and later helped disassemble the hall.

This is Carole Kane (right) and a couple of volunteers.

My Good Bears Den was able to donate bears to this event this year too. They were handed out by a couple of clowns. As you can see they were appreciated.

It was great to see all the smiling faces of the kids! I plan on doing it again next year.
