Every year the City of Bushnell teams up with the Children's Home Society and places an Angel Tree in the lobby of City Hall. This allows the community to help grant Christmas wishes to children in the community. This year the support and out-reach from the community was overwhelming!
The support came from all directions. Sumter Oaks RV Park came and took 18 children and provided gifts for them. Many citizens throughout Bushnell came to pick their child or children to make their Christmas bright. A huge THANK YOU TO THE COMMUNITY!
The local girls softball team, SWAT 14U (Softball with Attitude Girls 14 and up) held a tournament at Kenny Dixon sports Complex and did a Pitch, Hit & Give. Every player was asked to bring a new unwrapped toy for a child. The girls did an amazing job collecting toys for those in need. All of the toys collected were donated to the Children's Home Society. It was a very Merry Christmas, thanks to our very generous and caring community! THANK YOU GIRLS!
