Our secondary mission is to stimulate the spirit of giving in the youth in attendance by encouraging free-will donations (clothing, shoes, money, toys, and food) to be donated to the Norfolk Rescue Mission.”  In all, over 300 people attended the event, receiving some great education while having lots of fun. Four large totes of clothes, toys, and food were collected and donated to the Norfolk Rescue Mission.Children's Health 3Children's Health 10Children's Health 9Children's Health 7Children's Health 6Children's Health 4
