PRESS RELEASE: Christmas In July

The Christmas in July event is the brainchild of the Montgomery County Minority GOP.   We felt that Jesus is the reason for every season and not just one day in December.  So we felt what better way to celebrate the birth of the savior than in the summer.  Rather than making this about a political event, we sought ways to reach out to the community and see how we could meet their needs.
While conducting that search, we were told about the Nellie Burge Community Center and the great work they were doing to help the homeless women of the Montgomery county area for the last 100 years.  While speaking with the directors of the center and touring the facilities, we were impressed with their programs to help mothers get their lives together and the quality of their accommodations.  Each member has responsibilities and is required to meet specific outlined objectives to help them get back on their feet.  It is a program that stresses personal responsibilities for one's destiny, which are the qualities that we highlight as a way to restore the minority community.
Too may times, with most charities, people only help during holidays.  But people have needs year round and not just during the holidays.  No time is that more evident than around the beginning of the school year. Parents that are struggling financially have a particularly hard time meeting those needs.  Nothing hurts a parent more then when they have to look their kids in the eye and say that they cannot afford to buy school clothes or/and supplies.  That is the objective of the Christmas in July event.  We are pulling together theCommunity to help us provide school supplies and clothes for the children of the Nellie Burge Community center.
Please look into your heart and donate to help us reach our goal of celebrating Christmas in July at the Nellie Burge Community Center on Saturday, July 26th at 10 AM CST.
Thank You,







William A. Green, Jr.
Chairman, Montgomery County Minority GOP
