Elementary school students at six schools in District 6 will get a special present this year when Councilman David James (D-6) and his holiday helpers once again host the Winter Wonderland on Friday, December 15th.
“This year we will continue our effort to give warm coats to students in need and help them stay warm during the winter so they can achieve great things at school,” says James. “This is the time of year when it is better to give than receive and I have some great sponsors to help me achieve that goal.”
On Friday, December 15th, Councilman James will be distributing coats to students who attend Frayser, Englehard, Cochran, McFerran, Brandies and Wheatly Elementary Schools at First Gethsemane Center for Family Development, 1221 First Gethsemane Avenue.
The students who have the greatest need were identified through their Jefferson County Public Schools Resource Counselors.
The giveaway was made possible through some very generous sponsors who have helped out at many seasonal District 6 events this year.
Councilman James has partnered with Kosair Charities and Kohl’s will also be on hand for the distribution. The company is sending some very helpful store elves (employees) to assist. This collaborative effort also includes these additional sponsors: Ronaldo Designer Jewelers, Dr. & Mrs. Thomas and Nancy Woodcock, Bruce Blue, Dr. Alexander Digenis and Emily Digenis, Todd Roman of Play Louisville and Hunter Sattich.
“These sponsors have joined with me to make sure the children in our area that are in need will have a special holiday,” says James. “Our main theme is a special one for the Winter Wonderland: The list has been made and checked twice, no naughtiness here, just to be nice!”
The fun begins at 5:00pm on Friday, December 15th.
