It was a snowy afternoon in Dallas yesterday as Chevrolet surprised hundreds of children at Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas by converting their Mesquite, TX Club into a “Pop-Up North Pole.” The event featured real snow, sledding, cookie decorating, winter-themed games, and other festive activities to provide a fun and memorable holiday experience for children.
Chevrolet and Boys & Girls Clubs pulled off the ultimate holiday surprise by transforming the children’s afterschool facility into an unexpected and true Winter Wonderland. Over 200 children from the Dallas area, ranging in age from 6 to18, jumped off the school bus into a snowy playground for the afternoon.
Santa and Mrs. Claus were also there to hear kids’ holiday wish lists, and each child in attendance received a special gift provided by Chevrolet.
“Chevrolet wanted to do something unique this holiday season to give back to the Dallas community,” said Grant Lindsay, Chevrolet Spokesperson, Dallas. “At its core, Chevrolet has the same ‘never give up’ spirit that Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas instills in the children they work with, and we were thrilled to give them a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Chevrolet has a rich history in the State of Texas and specifically in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The brand is invested in the Dallas community, by collaborating with local organizations like the Boys & Girls Club.
“We couldn’t be more thankful to Chevrolet for bringing the North Pole to Boys & Girls Clubs in Dallas,” said Cherri Rowe, Area Director of Operations & Traditional Clubs, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas. “We aim to provide life-changing programs and experiences to the children that are part of our organization, and the opportunity to play in the snow in Texas will leave a lasting impression for years to come.”
