In GiveThiSway

This Christmas, our team has adopted the wish lists of 8 local children from First in Families Operation Santa. First in Families of the Sandhills provides support and resources to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. With your help, we can make their holidays brighter.

List is below. Gifts should be unwrapped and be brought to The Pilot office at 145 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Southern Pines by Saturday, December 2nd at 3pm.

Please email hello@itsthesway.com and tell us which item or items you will purchase so we can keep our list updated.

There are still more children whose wish lists are unfulfilled. For more information please contact Susan Holmes at 910-692-8272.
