Christmas cheer comes to St. George and other Washington County families this holiday season from Dixie State College. The college students and faculty members have come together to continue their support of the KONY-FM “Coins for Kids” radio campaign. This campaign helps get families in the Christmas spirit all around St. George and other communities in Washington County, UT. This year, they have gathered to purchase and donate over 400 gifts, which is the largest in the school’s history.
The Dixie State College family has toys, diapers, clothes, coats, shoes, and more for all boys and girls ages six months to 12 years. The gifts will be given through Dixie State’s “Gift of Dixie” Christmas tree and Dance activities.
This is the best part of the Christmas season to many involved in the campaign. Students from Sunrise Ridge Intermediate School raised over $1,000 for the “Gift of Dixie” effort. This money went toward a major gift shopping spree. Now, all donated and purchased gifts will be wrapped by volunteers and placed under the Dixie State College Student Association Christmas tree until they are ready for delivery.
This is an effort that many community members truly appreciate. It’s inspiring to see so many young college students working so hard to make a difference in someone’s life and brighten their holidays.
