The Holly Jolly Express is a group of Kutz Elementary teachers who carol in a decorated school bus to popular bus stops throughout their school district. While singing to spread festive spirit in the community, the primary purpose is to collect donations for A Woman’s Place, a domestic violence center in Doylestown. It is one of the most anticipated events of the year for the entire school community, with students joining in on the fun. This year, local fire trucks, police officers, and Roxy Reader dogs (a charitable nonprofit therapy dog organization) joined the fun!
At Delaware Valley Journal, we’re looking for more kids (18 and younger) like kids at Kutz Elementary School who are volunteering with charities, church groups, Scout troops, etc. — or just putting the Christmas spirit into action all on their own! Send us a photo of your favorite Santa’s helper in action, and information about the charity they’re supporting, and you might just see it featured at DVJournal.
PLUS: We’ll pick one of the highlighted charities and make our own $1,000 donation to the cause!
Just send your photo (with names and ages) of the kids you spot helping others — ringing the Salvation Army bell, collecting for Toys for Tots, working at a local food bank, whatever! — and email it to [email protected].
If possible, please include a link to the charity’s website, too, so we can encourage others to support the cause.
