Clothe A Child

What it is

Clothe-A-Child is a yearly event provided by Sy Harrison Lodge No 70 in cooperation with the Order of the Eastern Star, the Zane Grey Shrine Club as well as the donations and volunteers from the rim country community.  The program is targetted at gramar school children identified by the school nurses as being deserving of something special at Christmas.

Donations to fund this are solicited by the Lodge each year to pay for clothing and gifts for 20-30 children.

The Lodge provides chaperones for each child, and together they fill a request provided by the parents, keeping within a set dolar value/child.
The fun...
The chaperons board a school bus and with a police escort, and are transported to Walmart. When the lists are filled and checked (twice) the bus is again escorted to the Lodge, where they await the arrival of Santa.

Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive on a fire engine to cheers. Once inside Santa reads 'Twas The Night Before Christmas, then each child receives a wrapped gift provided by the Lodge.
