The Cherokee Braves varsity football team is about to start its annual Santa Braves program which provides toys and money for Christmas presents for children housed at the Cherokee Children’s Home.
The toys are presented to the Cherokee Family Support Office and offered to families through their Christmas Store. Cherokee is hosting Swain in basketball on Friday, Dec. 17, and on this night the CHS Athletic Program is offering free admittance to anyone who brings an unopened toy to the game.
Also, throughout the holiday season, individuals can make a donation in the form of buying a Christmas Stocking at one of the following locations in Cherokee: Mountain Federal Credit Union, Cherokee High, Cherokee Boys Club and the Qualla Public Library. All proceeds go to the Family Support Office.
