Excellence in Education: Lincoln Christian donates to Gifts of Love drive

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


This morning, elementary students at Lincoln Christian school had their arms full of donations. Almost every student brought toys or money for ‘Gifts of Love.’

Gifts of Love is an annual program through City Impact that provides Christmas gifts to local families in need.

Beginning tomorrow night, parents can shop through the donations and pick out presents for their kids. The organization says it gives needing families a ‘Christmas with dignity’.

Students at Lincoln Christian were excited to chip in.

"Families will become shopping for their children to be able to provide gifts from their children for Christmas and you are a part of that," says Brad Bryan with City Impact.

This is the 20th year that Lincoln Christian has partnered with City Impact for their Gifts of Love drive.
City Impact hopes to provide toys to 3,500 local children this Christmas.
