In December we had the opportunity of meeting the needs of 12 deserving families in Salisbury. My original intention was to provide gifts for the children of these families at Christmas. After hearing more about their unique situations it was obvious that “Christmas gifts” were the least of these kids’ wants and needs. I decided to solicit the help of my brother, Dr. Robert M. Selden of Selden Orthodontics, my good friend, Dr. Dennis J. Coleman of Davidson, NC and my neighbor, Fred Waite. Together we were able to provide each child with new shoes, pants, shirts, coats, under garments, school supplies, toys, books and more. We were also able to provide each family with gift cards to a local grocery store and VISA gift cards for the parents. This was a very powerful experience for me and my family as we will be looking to impact even more families in 2013. Special thanks to Mr. Bob Foreman for helping with the distribution of all the gifts.
