RALEIGH — Taking a break from the usual tasks of voter registration and precinct training, Republican activists and the Republican National Committee teamed up to hold over 400 charity drives across the country.
In North Carolina, which held seven events from mid-November through mid-December, over 400 children and frontline healthcare workers benefitted from their efforts.
Volunteers participated in writing holiday cards for Operation Christmas Child and for children’s hospital patients, filling boxes with toys and hygiene items, and in Robeson County, collected more than 150 toys to donate to local churches, providing holiday assistance to families.
Alex Nolley, the state RNC spokeswoman, said of the efforts, “Republicans are focused on truly making a difference in our communities and building lasting relationships through serving others. Through these holiday charity drives, Republicans are living our values and showing that there is a place for every North Carolinian in the Republican Party.”
