SHARONVILLE, Ohio -- Children with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program were surprised when a truck pulled up to their location this week to unload bags full of presents.
The UAW No. 863 of the Ford Motor Company in Sharonville donated gifts for 135 children from 46 families served by Big Brothers Big Sisters in Butler County. The group also donated Christmas dinners complete with a frozen turkey to each family.
Each year, the UAW Community Service Committee organizes a drive to collect gifts for families in the Greater Cincinnati area who are in need of assistance during this time of the year.
"Employees love participating in this project," said Cheryl Holland, community service committee chair. "The project is near and dear to the hearts of the community service committee because they have all experienced hardships and times when they needed help."
"Big Brothers Big Sisters so appreciates the generosity shown by UAW No. 863 in helping bring joy to these children on Christmas," said Julie Dichtl, vice president of development at BBBS.
Holland hopes that others will "pay it forward" and help others when they can.
