Scotty McCreery is going to make like Santa Claus this holiday season and not because he is going to don a red suit and hand out gifts at a promotional event. The Season 10 ‘American Idol’ winner is actually doing much more. He is headed to the Dominican Republic to take part in Operation Christmas Child, which is the world’s largest Christmas project.
McCreery will be in the country from Dec. 27 through Dec. 31 to deliver gift-filled shoe boxes to impoverished children in the country. McCreery is truly emblematic of the spirit of giving during Christmas and the holidays, choosing to leave the comforts of home in order to provide for others.
For years, the ‘I Love You This Big’ singer has actually filled shoe boxes with toys, school supplies and others items of necessity for young children in need, who might not otherwise receive a present during the holidays. Since McCreery is in the public eye, he is using his fame for good and is encouraging his fans to participate in this charitable initiative alongside him. Operation Christmas Child has a goal to deliver items to 8.5 million children this holiday season.
If you’d like to get on board with Scotty McCreery and this endeavor, you can build a box for a needy child by going here.

Several people have asked me for the address to send cards to Jenna and how she is doing. So, I thought I'd take the time to post her address again and what I have found out about how she is doing right now. If you are new to this site or just didn't see the previous post that Hailey and I have posted about Jenna, she is a young girl from Scotty's church that is battling cancer. Her mom tweeted yesterday that she is back in the hospital running a fever and they are waiting for the results of some test to come back to find out what is going on.
Some people have also asked me if they could purchase a JennaWarriors shirt, like the one Scotty wore at the QDR Concert for Kids. So, I asked Jenna's mom and she said they are completely sold out at this time but they are planning on placing another order and she would keep me posted. I will let everyone know when they are going to place an order just in case someone is interested in ordering one.
Here is the address for anyone that is interested in sending cards to Jenna and her family.
Mail Cards to:
c/o Jennifer Watkins
Garner, NC 27529
Below are the links to her FaceBook page and the CaringBridge Page. When you have a moment take time join the Caring Bridge Page and let them know Scotty's fans are praying for them.
