LUMBERTON — More than a hundred students at Magnolia Elementary School in Lumberton received early Christmas presents through the school’s annual holiday giveaway event on Friday.


The event is coordinated by the school’s social worker, Felecia Scott, who began collecting donations at the beginning of the year. Scott and other members of the school’s staff selected 164 students to receive donations.


According to a statement from the school, donations were made possible through support from community members, local businesses, area churches, Robeson County commissioners, Sen. Michael Walters and state House Rep. Charles Graham.


Pre-K and kindergarten students received toys, while first- through eighth-grade students received Walmart gift cards. Students were also given shirts, shoes and coats.


The Lumbee Tribe Boys and Girls Club donated 25 toys for the younger children. Lennis Watts, J.W. Musselwhite, Buddy Stephens and Karen and David Allen donated 101 Walmart gift cards.


“I am overwhelmed and speechless at the kindness of those that gave,” Scott said. “Some of these children, this will be the only gifts they will receive for Christmas.”
