News Talk 1110 WBT supports Kids First of the Carolinas annually with leadership from WBT host, John Hancock. Hancock has been involved with this charity for nearly two decades. Each year, we help lead the way for donations that make it possible for this charity to exist. Hancock broadcasts live onsite from the Kids First gift collection site, where it is an awe-inspiring, lump-in-the-throat-inducing sight to behold as the local Charlotte Community pulls together to help needy children receive the best holiday possible. Literally truckloads of gifts arrive one by one, and hundreds of local hands all gather around to help unload the vehicles which will then be distributed to the children at the annual Christmas Party. The party includes lots of food - generously donated from area restaurants - music, entertainment, children's smiles, and of course, Santa himself! Simply put, the event is the very essence of what the holiday season is all about: communities coming together in the light of a giving spirit.
Kids First of the Carolinas is a very small, grass roots charity, that hosts an annual Christmas Party for homeless and underprivileged children. They are a 501C3 non-profit and do not receive any Local, State or Federal Funding. The annual Christmas party helps over 600 kids receive holiday presents who otherwise may have no Christmas at all. The charity consists of just two giving moms and a great group of volunteers. Kids First of the Carolinas works to help families help themselves to a better lifestyle.
