UNCG Athletics Teams Up With Fox 8 Gifts For Kids For 20th Straight Year
GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG Athletics and WGHP FOX8 teamed up once again for the FOX8 Gifts for Kids campaign to assist families in the Piedmont area during the holiday season. UNCG and FOX8 have been teaming up for over 20 years for this community service campaign.
This year, UNCG student-athletes continued its tradition with the FOX8 Gifts For Kids program, where they sponsored three children, and purchased items from the children's Christmas lists. The student-athletes bought gifts for a two-year boy, a two-year old girl and an 11-year old boy. The families were chosen at random by the Salvation Army of High Point.
In working with The Salvation Armies of the Piedmont, the purpose of Gifts for Kids is to collect holiday gifts for children in the Triad whose families are in need. FOX8 Gifts for Kids helps The Salvation Army’s serve more than 20,000 children in the Piedmont at Christmas.
