Jenn Eggert and her daughter Riley, who has autism, they’ve worked past many challenges to collect hundreds of toys every year for children in their community.
JENN EGGERT – AWARD RECIPIENT
Hi I’m Jenn Eggert and this is my daughter Ryley Eggert. We actually help Homeless Network’s children at Christmas time. For the last two years, we’ve collected toys, basics like blankets, socks underwear, vitamins, sometimes shoes if they need it. And each child gets a full Christmas.
DAVID EGGERT – FATHER
This has really taken off because of her dreams and her thoughts, we’ve just been there to support her in any way that we could. This year, our goal is to reach 125 children.
They’re a team, and they win our April Caring for the Carolinas award. I hear applause, it’s just coming on down. In addition, our winners receive a gift card from our friends at Ingles. Also gifts from Bath Fitter and Unclaimed Furniture.
