TC Wallace Foundation welcomes 100 children from Washington, DC to its 3rd Annual Kids Jingle Jam to an exciting day of mobile video gaming (YES VIDEO GAMES), interactive activities, and see Ronald McDonald Go Active! with his live magic performance. The Jingle Jam will be held on Friday, December 19, 2014, from 3pm to 7pm, at the R.I.S.E Demonstration Center in Southeast, Washington, DC. Sponsored by Behind It All, Toys for Tots, Game Truck Party, McDonalds, RISE Demonstration Center, Keynettions & Secure Moves...TCWF rings in the night with Santa and his helpers, giving each child a new toy and a chance to take a special Christmas photo with Santa himself.
TCWF believes no matter the situation, every child deserves to experience the joys of Christmas. Many of these children are experiencing the difficult challenges of being homeless or suffering from financial hardships and may not even have the opportunity to experience the joys of the holiday season. Hence, it is up to us to make this a miraculous experience they will never forget......making it “a place where a kid can be a kid,” says Kiah Esaw, Vice President of TC Wallace Foundation.
Over the past three years, we have partnered with tons of corporations and small businesses to donate over 3,500 brand new toys and clothes to low-income children. With help from community volunteers, organizations, and corporate companies, we strive to REACH FOR CHANGE, ONE STAR A TIME’....every year. This year, we set our goal to support 100 children in the Washington, DC area. We encourage interested sponsors, volunteers, donors, and supporters to visit us at www.kidsjinglejam3.eventbrite.com to register your business or self to participate in this exciting event.
Child registration is open to DMV residents...and the registration period ends on Wednesday, December 14, 2014. We look forward to seeing everyone at this monumental event!

It’s something we see every day – children healing because they’re surrounded by their families. And while RMHC may not be able to make the medicine taste better or erase the pain of a much-needed treatment, we can help lessen the burden for nearly nine million families each and every year. Since 1974, our network of local Chapters have been making children happier and healthier by keeping families together – giving them a place to rest and refresh. A place that feels like home. These programs, tailored to meet the urgent needs of each community, can now be found in more than 62 countries and regions across the globe.
