Greg Jones, a sixth year starting fullback for the Jacksonville Jaguars, has teamed up with Feed the Children and the Boys and Girls Club of Beaufort, SC, to make Christmas possible for hundreds of deserving families and youth this holiday season.
On Monday, December 21, Greg and his wife Dana will act as Santa's Helpers and provide 100 youth enrolled in the Boys & Girls Club in the 1st through 8th grades, each a toy and clothing and supply 400 pre-selected families with three pre-packaged boxes that will include food, household items and personal items through Feed the Children.
"The Beaufort Boys and Girls Club of LowCountry is pleased to welcome a visit from Beaufort native Greg Jones. Our organization, the staff and club members are so excited about the upcoming visit and I am glad for our community to see that Christmas means giving," said Sam Burke, Director of B&G Club of Beaufort.
The giveaways will begin at Battery Creek High School, 1 Blue Dolphin Dr., Beaufort, SC from 1:00 to 4:00pm, where 400 pre-selected families will receive the pre-packaged items off the Feed the Children Truck. Shortly after, Greg and his team will move over to the Boys and Girls Club of Beaufort, 1100 Boundary St., Beaufort, SC, to distribute gifts and clothing to 100 pre-selected youth from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. "It's a great honor for me to return back to my community to help these families out. I'm looking forward to meeting the selected youth and families, and to let them know that I care," said Jones.
