In the Spirit of Giving: Christmas for Kids

The holidays bring all sorts of things: singing, food, family, joy, and so much more. However, some families may not be as fortunate as others. Whatever the difficulty may be, financial or otherwise, gift-giving can be hard in some families. Where there is struggle, there is also a community of people willing to help.

Members of the Defiance College community joined up with 98.1’s Christmas for Kids to help create a memorable Christmas for all kids. Every year, the news station joins representatives from several Defiance College organizations around the Christmas tree in Serrick to partake in the giving of presents to those less fortunate. Many sports teams donate gifts along with other organizations on campus like Alpha Phi Omega, the service fraternity on-campus.

The softball team was also one of those teams that joined in donating. The team decided to meet around the tree at about 7 a.m. bringing several gifts. From board games to toys, the team brought all sorts of things to help bring joy this holiday season. Senior Sydni Smith stated that she enjoys donating to Christmas for Kids because “giving back to kids that don’t have a lot makes you feel so good and so appreciative of all that you are fortunate to have in your life.”

This holiday season, make it a goal of yours to give back to the community in some way, shape or form. It’ll make you feel better but will also make a huge difference in someone’s life.
