Masons host annual Clothe a Child at Bealls Outlet

It was only 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning and already the parking lot was full and the lights were on at Bealls Outlet in the Walmart center.  Select families with small children were arriving for their appointed shopping spree thanks to the White Mountain Lodge and a program they launched several years ago to support area kids at Christmas time.

Jim Rasmussen is a member of the White Mountain Lodge and says they team up every year with local retailer, Bealls Outlet to make this holiday season alittle happier for local children ages five to ten years old who might not otherwise get much under the tree. Volunteers are on hand to help parents and children pick out items and their purchases are made possible through donations made to the White Mountain Lodge#3 in the name of the Dave Johnson Memorial Clothe a Child fund.

Approximately thirty children are selected for the program with fifteen children from Globe and fifteen children from Destiny. According to Rasmussen, this was the first year this program did not include Miami because another group came in from Saddlebrook and took Miami kids under their wing.
