Fultondale family receives holiday surprise from Cricket Wireless
FULTONDALE, Alabama (WBRC) – A family from Fultondale had a huge and well-deserved surprise for the holidays.
Cricket Wireless has partnered with the Boys and Girls Club AG Gaston to gift the Burks family $ 5,000, an unforgettable surprise to help the family “Stress Less, Smile More” this holiday season.
Mom Karrissa Burks and her two sons, Dallas and Austin, were surprised by the money that will help them meet critical needs.
We were able to get remote control cars, the Nintendo Switch, which was hard to find, ”said Tommie Henry, senior marketing director at Cricket. “Clothes, Visa gift cards to help out, and other items that mom and kids might need later on the road. “
The last gift was a $ 1,000 gift card for utility bills, which made Karrissa cry.
“I’m really grateful because I didn’t know what I was going to do for them for Christmas,” said Karrissa Burks. “And now look at God! “
The family is one of many nominees across the country who will be surprised for 12 days as part of Cricket Wireless’ 12 Days of Cricket donation initiative.
“Oh, that is priceless. I have four children, and seeing the smiles on the faces of the children, and also of the parents, means a lot to them. If you’re a parent and can see your kids being happy and getting what they want, it’s always a good story to tell, ”said Henry.
Cricket is helping raise funds for the Boys and Girls Club of America until December 20. If you would like to donate, click here.
