Xmas in July heading

On July 15, 2017, 40 kids came to our annual "Christmas in July" Party. Our Notre Dame intern Eric Kim and his helpers did a great job planning and facilitating the eventful day.

Kids got their “ticket" by previously completing a service for someone in their family or community. On the big day, making crafts, cookie decorating, musical chairs, eating nachos, hot dogs & popcorn were some of the many fun things waiting for each child. In addition, each child received a gift as well. Kids made pledges to read as part of the event.  Also, Mount of Olives Kid’s City donated several bicycles that were  given away.
