MINT HILL, NC – Every year at Bain Elementary School, students and their families donate a variety of “winter warmers” to decorate a very special tree on behalf of a local charity.  This year, Birthday Blessings was selected as the recipient of Bain’s unique holiday sock tree.

This colorful and festive collection effort lead by the school’s Media Center encourages students from all grade levels to bring new socks, mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves to hang on the tree during the month of December.

Just before the holiday break, the tree’s special “ornaments” were removed and presented to Birthday Blessings, amounting to three boxes full of items that will help homeless children keep warm this winter.

We are grateful to the students and faculty of Bain Elementary School for their generous contributions. We look forward to including these necessities in birthday gift packages this winter season for homeless families across the greater Charlotte community.

To all the Bain Bobcats, thank you for making a difference!
