Mon., Nov. 24 - Good morning Prince William - Happy Thanksgiving and Christmas is right around the corner so we are in full swing with our Un Trim A Tree Holiday Gift Program for needy kids. We currently have hundreds of children available and so many need warm clothes! I can provide you their name, age and two toy wishes so you can be a special Santa to a kid. Please visit my website at: volunteerprincewilliam.org and fill out a donor form for me. You will have a blast. I'm already stockpiling Frozen characters because I've been told that's the hot item. Come help us provide a little joy to a child.
