Scotty McCreery to Deliver Gift Boxes to Impoverished Dominican Republic Children

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.

    Jennifer Hudson is also part of the Divas show tonight.  Both of them are singing multiple songs and Kelly, JHud & Mary J. Blige are singing one together.

    Yay for Kelly being on SNL again.  This will be her third time, not bad for a pop chick who came from a stupid karaoke show.  ;) haha

    Thanks so much for the info on Covers of the Year. Taylor is getting a lot of press from Friday and the Toys for Tots. He has so much talent and a really big heart.
    Would like to see it in mjs headlines.
    But, again thanks for posting it here.

    Always nice to see those who are outwardly religous “Walk the Talk”

    Good for Scotty, way to make a real impact.  I become more convinced he is in actuallity the good guy we saw on Idol with each article I read about him.  Positive news is always welcome :D
