CLEVELAND, Tenn., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- This Sunday, Check Into Cash will join up with Creating Christmas Memories to give some lucky local children a Christmas to remember! The Creating Christmas Memories shopping event will take place Sunday, December 8, at Kmart in Cleveland, TN.
The shoppers will be children from local elementary schools who have been carefully selected by their teachers or principals to shop for their dream gifts. These students may not have been able to receive such gifts for Christmas otherwise. Volunteer shopping buddies will accompany the tiny shoppers and help them choose how to spend their allotted money wisely.
"This program is the highlight of some children's holiday season," said Check Into Cash Marketing Traffic Manager, and Creating Christmas Memories volunteer, Anne Person. "These children will get to go shopping and buy whatever it is that they want for Christmas!"
Check Into Cash representatives have been participating in Creating Christmas Memories for over 10 years, and some have served as the event's "Bagging Team" for five years. It is volunteers like these that make Creating Christmas Memories possible, volunteering to spend their time checking students in and out at the event, bagging items, checking prices, and serving as shopping buddies for the little shoppers.
"Check Into Cash is thrilled to be participating in the Creating Christmas Memories program again this year," said Check Into Cash Vice President of Corporate Development Mike London. "We are touched by the opportunity to make Christmas brighter for children in our community."
On average, Creating Christmas Memories benefits over 1,000 children each year.
