Children bring Christmas cheer at The Wade Center



BLUEFIELD, W. Va (WVVA)-- Area children raise the roof in celebration of Christmas.

The group performing at The Wade Center's Christmas show have worked on their performances for the past two months. They shared songs, praise dances, and dramatic readings of the scripture for an audience.

There was no fee to attend.

Leaders tell us this show was a proud moment for many parents because it also showcases the people these kids are growing up to be.

"We are, along with the parents and guardians, helping to raise these children up into the way they should go, so when they grow up they won't depart from it," said Jessica McDaniel, Director of the Wade Center.

"They are being grounded in god's word and in the scripture and they're getting it. It's changing their lives and they are going to go out there and change this community," she said.

The Wade Center recently met their goal to raise more than $80,000 so they can continue to operate.

Director Jessica McDaniel says the staff is very excited and thankful to the community for coming through for them once again.
