GREENSBORO, N.C.–WithIt’s Virginias/Carolinas chapter is bringing smiles this holiday season to a group that deserves extra cheer: children in hospitals, hospices and shelters. WithIt is accepting gifts for Little Smiles, a nonprofit that works with nurses, child-life staff and medical personnel to deliver toys, games and more to children and their families.
Beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 12, WithIt members will be at Chop House, 4001 Meeting Way, High Point, N.C., to accept unwrapped gifts for donation. Recommended items include new, unopened coloring books, picture books, crayons, dolls, board games and DVDs; monetary donations are accepted, too.
“Little Smiles helps children to escape their everyday pain, and I know all the generous donations from WithIt members and other industry professionals will be cherished by every recipient,” said WithIt Vice President-Networking Margi Kyle, who is founder of the Little Smiles North Carolina chapter and owner of The Design Doctor LLC. “This holiday event is a chance for WithIt members to mix and mingle, and support a good cause, as well.”
For monetary donations, send a check made out to: Little Smiles. The mailing address is Little Smiles, c/o WithIt, P.O. Box 16264, High Point, NC 27261.
On a date to be announced in January 2013, WithIt Vice President—Manufacturing Beverly Kastel, marketing manager at Ekornes, will host a collection for Little Smiles, too. For more information, contact Sara Lyke at director@WithIt.org.
