GREENSBORO -- Those with very little of their own are making a tremendous donation.
On Friday, the Boys and Girls Club from the Ray Warren Housing Authority Community in Greensboro made their way to the Avalon Trace Community Center to give several African refugees their age some of their favorite toys and clothes.
"It really meant a lot to them and to us as a staff to see them give what they do have and be so willing to give despite that it may be the only extra pair that they have," said Neal Hodson, Unit Director for the Boys & Girls Club.
The organization said this was the first event of this kind between the two communities and, beyond the gifts, it was about creating friendships and bonds between people of different backgrounds.
"It's the idea of them welcoming kids they don't know to their community," said Hodson.
The club spent the last six weeks pulling together toys, books, clothes and games to give away.
"A lot of these kids gave everything that they could possibly give to others," said Hodson.
