Each child will get time to meet with Santa, share their wish list, and talk about their favorite moments of the past year.
All donations and support are appreciated. 100% proceeds benefit Grow Our Kids.
Children under one are free. Once tickets are purchased, the Cheer Team will be in touch with more magical details as we approach the 4th!
About Grow Our Kids:
Grow Our Kids is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization born in North Carolina. Their mission is to "nourish young learners by filling the gap for underserved, local kids".
While many summer, weekend, and holiday programs exist, our year-round children face a serious and heartbreaking gap when "tracked-out" from school each quarter. This is the gap Grow Our Kids strives to fill through their three programs: Little Bellies, Little Hearts, and Little Minds. These programs address the achievement gap - a gap that is starkly weighted against low-income children - in three distinct ways: food, books, and baby thorugh pre-K care and development. They are active in 9 Wake County schools and serve over 300 kiddos throughout the year. Together - with the community - they hope to grow young minds and bodies so that every child, regardless of income, can return from prolonged breaks poised to succeed in the classroom and thrive as early learners.
