Rebels for a Cause is a new club which hosted a Jingle Bell Shop to donate presents to families in need this past Christmas.

For a $1 admission fee, students had the opportunity to pick out up to five gifts for their families from the Jingle Bell Shop on Dec. 18 and 19. All of these gifts were provided at no cost to the students.

Club administrator and Youth Service Center Director Ben Brown said the gifts included “lots of things.”

The gifts were all donations provided to the school such as baby dolls, clothes, books, and even games.

The donations were from a lot of people. The members of the club reached out on social media and the gifts flew in, according to Brown.

This was the first Jingle Bell Shop at Boone, and Brown said that he and fellow administrator Molly Petty got the idea when they went to a training.

“We wanted to find a way to help families and help students help their families,” Brown said.

Students from Rebels with a Cause helped to set up the shop for the event, and volunteers from the club worked both nights.

Some teachers and parents volunteered at this event to help.
During the two day period, more than 75 people shopped and close to 400 gifts were given away including those sold to siblings of students.

The remaining gifts were then donated to Florence Elementary and Florence Park Care Center.
