Giving Back to the Community
For more than 15 years, our local four-wheel drive community has been assisting the El Paso County Department of Human Services with their "Christmas for Kids" program. Children in our community have a brighter Christmas as a result of "Christmas for Kids." Every year we, and our fellow southern District 4-wheel drive clubs, invite people and businesses to partner with us by making financial or gifts-in-kind contributions. Our 4-wheel drive "teaming" is the heart of our success to bring hope and joy to less fortunate children. Last year our united efforts provided gifts for more than 300 children.
Four wheel drive clubs donate uncountable hours to this important cause in making phone calls, creating fund-raising mailings, creating spread sheets for tracking, meeting with DHS, and shopping for hundreds of gifts. A gift-wrapping party is prelude to the big event-the day of delivery to DHS and every purchased gift is given to these needed children.
