Wilson’s World: Big Kids Helping Little Kids at the Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree Lot
This Saturday, December 8th is Kids Day at the Hometown Hereos Christmas Tree Lot on Mallard Creek Road in Charlotte.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – If you are still in need of a beautiful fresh Christmas tree, Wilson has just the spot for you to find it. He was at the Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree Lot on Mallard Creek Road talking with the volunteers and catching up with one special young lady that he had met a few years ago.
Fourteen year old Angel met Wilson years ago when she was fighting brain cancer. She talked with Wilson this morning about how important Hometown Heroes has been to her and how they became a second family during her battle with the disease. Angel recently had an MRI that shows she is cancer free and was cleared for a follow up MRI in 2 years.
“Big Kids Helping Little Kids” is not just a motto for the volunteers with Hometown Heroes. Helping children who suffer with terminal illnesses or debilitating injuries and their families get through the rough roads they have to follow throughout their journey is the mission for Hometown Heroes. The Christmas tree lots that Hometown Heroes set up each Christmas is all about helping the kids.
This Saturday, Dec 8th is Kids Day at the Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree Lot on Mallard Creek Rd. From 1pm to 4pm there will be food, fun, bouncy houses and a helicopter landing and it’s all for the kids. Come hang out and have some fun with your kids and pick up a fresh cut Christmas tree.
There are 4 Hometown Heroes Christmas Tree lots located in the area, three in Union County and one in the University area. Hours vary for locations, so be sure to check out their website HERE. All of the trees are grown in North Carolina, cut fresh and brought to the lot.
Even if you already have your tree, stop by the lot, say hi and make a donation to Hometown Heroes and help the big kids help the little kids.
