WithIt Plans Charity EventDecember 3, 2012
Home furnishings women's leadership network WithIt is collecting gifts for the Little Smiles charity.
WithIt will hold a Christmas get-together on Dec. 12 at the Chop House in High Point, N.C., to support the effort. Margi Kyle, a WithIt board members and a Virgina/Carolinas regional member, founded Little Smiles in Charlotte, N.C., "to provide toys, games, DVDs, computers, VIP outings, celebrity meet-and-greets, concerts, sporting event tickets, theme park tickets, and so on for children in local hospitals, hospices and shelters; to help children escape their everyday pain and allow them to be a kid again, even if it's for a short period of time."
WithIt asks participants in the Dec. 12 event to bring a gift to donate to this charity. Suggested gifts include coloring books, colors, PlayDoh, boy and girl dolls, games, DVDs. Gifts should not be wrapped, so that nurses and volunteers can pick which items will have the most impact for the individual children. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Checks can be made payable to Little Smiles.
Details for the WithIt "Little Smiles" party, Dec. 12, 6 p.m., Chop House, 4001 Meeting Way, High Point. Members and friends are welcome. Please RSVP to Sara Lyke if you plan to stay for dinner.
