Clarksville Cares takes over Walmart

December 10th, 2018

Though it wasn’t a school day, Clarksville Community Schools staff and students, along with community volunteers, were up bright and early Sunday morning. The crew took over Walmart for the sixth year in a row to spread holiday cheer and buy presents for students. Each student had $150 to spend thanks to donations from businesses, churches and individuals in the community. From socks, jeans and coats to acrylic paints, Xbox games and jewelry, each student was able to pick exactly what they wanted. Sixty-eight students shopped on Sunday and 14 weren’t present but shopped for, totaling 82 students whose season will be a little more merry and bright thanks to the generosity of the community.

The event is made possible by Clarksville Cares, a nonprofit that serves students through the district in a number of ways. For more information on Clarksville Cares, go here.
