Rock City Christmas Give 2015

Posted on: November 13, 2015

It’s that time of the year again and we are gearing up for one incredible Christmas season.  The annual Rock City Christmas Give is going to be bigger than ever this year, which means more opportunity to jump in and serve!

Throughout the month of December, we’ll be partnering with local inner-city schools to give brand-new shoes to kids who need them. These fun events put everyone in the Christmas spirit because there’s nothing like putting shoes on the feet of a kid who needs them.

We’d love for you to partner with us! Just click HERE to sign up to volunteer at one of our events.

You can also give a year-end financial gift to the Christmas Give by clicking HERE.
