VGCC students provide Christmas gifts for family in need

Students in the SkillsUSA chapter at Vance-Granville Community College recently made the holidays brighter by providing a variety of Christmas presents for a local family with four children who recently lost a parent.

The initiative was among the first service and outreach projects conducted under the auspices of the college’s SkillsUSA organization. VGCC recently joined the national partnership of students, teachers and industry, working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. Students in a variety of VGCC programs are eligible to join SkillsUSA .

The chapter conducted the service project in partnership with “All God’s Children,” a local charitable organization affiliated with South Henderson Pentecostal Holiness Church.
