Cosmopolitan Club Plays Santa for Abused Children!
Cosmopolitan Club of Elizabeth City has been on a shopping spree for
three children who receive services at Kids First! The Club members
provided each child with toys, clothes (including new pajamas to wear
on Christmas morning), and.... bicycles! What a joy this will be for
these children, all of whom came out of abusive homes, have been in
therapy, and are doing SO well with their new families. Our hearts are
about to burst with gratitude for these wonderful people who are giving
so compassionately to children they will never personally get to see or
know, and we know how grateful these families are to be able to provide
a special Christmas to these special children.

appreciated and will contribute to the healing opportunities Kids First
provides to abused and neglected children throughout northeastern North
Carolina. Our deepest thanks to Wachovia for supporting nonprofit
