The Alice Lloyd College baseball team, along with Phi Beta Lambda members, RAs, and representatives from the SGA and Impact Club, lent a helping hand at the annual Christmas for Kenny’s Kids event held Saturday, December 8th, at the Knott County Sportsplex.
Players from the baseball team were placed on cleanup duty, while others from ALC welcomed children and their parents when they arrived, prepared treat bags, and served food to those in attendance at Saturday’s event. Organizers were expecting a large crowd from Knott, Letcher, Floyd, and Perry counties. The rash of recent layoffs in the coal industry led to this high expectation.
The children who attended received a gift and picture with Santa, in addition to bags of fruit, candy, and a New Testament presented by the Gideons. ALC students remarked that the event reminded them not to take so much for granted and found the experience both rewarding and humbling.
