Tri-Coastal Community Outreach, Inc., hosts 9th Annual "On Wings of Doves" Christmas shopping event December 20 in Bayou La Batre
Tri-Coastal Community Outreach, Inc., headed by executive director Carolyn Thompson, is hosting its 9th Annual "On Wings of Doves" children's Christmas shopping experience on Saturday, December 20, 9 a.m.-noon at Bayou La Batre Church of God.
More than 400 pre-approved children and their families will come to shop with "Santa Dollars" for gifts and toys. The backdrop for this event will include holiday music by Daniel Driskell of Full Scale School of Music, a viewing of the movie "Frozen" and an appearance by characters from the movie, brought to life by students from Alma Bryant High School Drama and Theater Department.
In a press release from Sher Graham of the Synergy Solutions Group, Thompson said of On Wings of Doves, "If we can offer a small amount of hope for children, then we have given some hope to the family." This program is unique in that by letting even toddlers experience shopping, going through the check-out line and paying for their items, they learn financial responsibility at an early age, Thompson said.
Doves and other Tri-Coastal programs administered by Thompson have had a tremendous impact on Gulf Coast communities. To find out more, visit www.tricoastalcommunity.org.
