Christmas in August
August 8, 2015 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am
For the fifth anniversary of Christmas in August, we will all gather and welcome children and their families to McKechnie Field so that the children can go back to school well equipped – and their parents/guardians can learn about how to move to a more sustainable life and no longer be classified as “homeless.”
Cameo appearances will be provided by TWO Santas, plus a DJ and a performance by the children’s song and dance group Beautiful Sei of Polynesia. There will be soccer games, children’s activities and a drawing for children’s bicycles.
This year’s event is made possible by several first-time contributors (the Healthy Teens Coalition, League of Women Voters, Manatee Community Federal Credit Union, Manatee County Library, Project Light, and Women’s Resource Center) as well as supporters of previous Christmas in August events (American Red Cross, Boys and Girls Club, CARES Outreach Network, Early Learning Coalition, Family Partnership, Goodwill, Junior League, Manatee County Health Department, Manatee Glens, Manatee Technical College, Salvation Army, Suncoast Community Capital, Turning Points, and United Way).
Together we come together to help each child, each day, to succeed and live a better life.
