Parks, Recreation & Tourism Program Highlights

 TR-shopping-12-2018

Volunteers joined young therapeutic recreation participants in shopping for holiday gifts for parents and siblings.  After the shopping trip, the youngsters were treated to a pizza party while their gifts were wrapped with care and love.  This annual event is supported by contributions to the Rock Hill Parks Foundation, a component of the Foundation for the Carolinas.
