December brings warm holiday traditions that are anticipated each year. A favorite annual event for Eva Waldman, Manager at Grampian Hills Apartments, is called “Dress the Kids.” Last Friday was her seventh year participating in this day of giving.
Over 150 low-income school children in the Williamsport area were invited to spend a morning with volunteers who took them to Wal-Mart where new coats, shoes and clothes were waiting for them. They were treated to lunch and video games at an area arcade. A surprise visit from Santa brought gifts for each child- backpacks filled with snacks and goodies. The event is organized by wonderful volunteers such as Eva and generous donations from local businesses. The time Eva spends with the kids is truly one of the highlights of her holiday season.
