Augusta, GA - Paine College is opening the grounds and gates to the 15th Street entrance to welcome everyone from the Augusta community for the Paine College Christmas Caravan on Thursday, December 11, 2014 from 4-7 pm.  The goodwill event is designed to help needy families with non-perishable food, household items and toys for the holiday season.  Paine College has partnered with the Golden Harvest Food Bank and Toys for Tots and asks that people donate by joining the caravan of cars on 15th Street to drive through the front entrance and drop off their donations.  

The exclusive festive event will feature a variety of choirs singing Christmas carols, hot chocolate, baked goods, and drawings for special holiday prizes as well.  You can also enter to bring your donation by walking on the campus where members of the Paine College faculty, staff, alumni, and students will be on hand to greet you.  Paine College President, Dr. Samuel Sullivan says, “We are pleased to open up our gates to spread some holiday cheer and welcome our friends as we close out this year and begin anew. It’s the perfect way for us to tell others how much we appreciate them.”

We ask that the media be present at the 4 pm start to be sure you capture the special ceremony to open the gates!  Santa Claus will lead the caravan as other Augusta dignitaries and community leaders will join in to make their contributions.
