Remember our 2019 Kicks 99 Christmas Wish? I know, it seems like forever ago, but it’s still fresh in the minds of those who were helped by your generosity.
We received an update from Amanda Hamilton, a teacher at Harlem Middle School, who nominated one of her students. She says, “Remember John Daniel Bannister? Well, his sister graduated from Harlem High this weekend. Mom sent me the following message [with permission to share]…
John Daniel’s big Sister, Sara, finally graduated from Harlem High School last Friday. It was a big event for him, too! He was dressed really nice, thanks to some of those gift cards you arranged for us to receive at Christmas. He has worn those shoes every single day since then. He wears them to work. In the mud, in the rain, he throws them in the washing machine. He loves those shoes! When I see them, I think about you & your kindness. Thank you for supporting John Daniel through Middle School & being such a beautiful angel in our time of need. God bless you!”
Kicks Country, you amazed us with your generosity for each of our Christmas Wish recipients. Thank you for always stepping up to meet the needs of people in our community. Christmas comes and goes, but your thoughtfulness is still felt and appreciated throughout the year by those you helped!
