Nikolas is excited to run the Rustin 5k this Saturday! It is a local run that is benefitting the Bayard Rustin High School's Cross Country Team. They graciously invited Nikolas to set up a donation table for Operation Warm too! This is a late afternoon run (4:30) and barbecue. Come out for this fun event! http://www.rustinxcteam.com
Nikolas has been selected as a store-level winner in the Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program "in recognition of your outstanding volunteer efforts and contributions within your community!" This accomplishment now qualifies him to be considered for a regional scholarship! Congratulations, Nikolas!!!

We'll give you some clues: it is summer here when it is winter there, the names of two of their most famous animals both begin with the letter K, and this little guy above is also a native of the continent. Any guesses?
We received a very generous donation for Operation Warm supporting Nikolas's campaign! Nikolas couldn't believe it—he was so excited! When he found out, Nikolas asked, "Who is it from?" and mom said, "Well, we don't know, it's anonymous." Nikolas continued, "I know it's anonymous but who is it from anyway?!"
200 more warm children with their very own new winter coat!! Thank you so much!
