K.A.R.E. for Kids makes holiday wishes come true

POSTED: November 13, 2013 4:00 a.m.

Hundreds of local children will wake up Christmas morning to find presents under their trees thanks to dozens of volunteers determined to make holiday wishes come true.

K.A.R.E. for Kids, the Dawsonville-based non-profit organization that strives to serve the community's less fortunate families, is currently accepting applications for the 2013 Christmas season.

Applications are accepted from 9 to 11 a.m. Nov. 16 and 23, 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 18 and 25 and 5 to 9 p.m. Dec. 2 at the former Dawson Learning Center, at 40 Hightower Parkway, Suite A, Dawsonville.

Funded by profits from the annual Mountain Moonshine Festival, the group of volunteers purchases items such as winter coats, shoes, clothing, medicine, toys for Christmas and provide year-round assistance to families in need.

"Support of the Mountain Moonshine Festival enables K.A.R.E. for Kids to continue its mission of providing Christmas to children in Dawson County," said Calvin Byrd, president of the organization.

K.A.R.E. for Kids also depends on the community's generosity and receives support from local organizations, individual families and businesses.
