To the editor:
As the school year winds down and children enjoy a couple of months of summer fun, it is time for us to prepare for the Christmas in July program.
We are seeking sponsors, much like the Tree of Hope, to adopt a child and buy them back-to-school supplies and a new outfit to start the school year.
Backpacks can be purchased for $5 at Seaside Embroidery at 4519 Main St. in Shallotte.
This program helps the children of Brunswick County who are verified by BFA as being at 100 percent of the federal poverty level.
