Carroll named General Chair of Children’s Shopping Tour set for Dec. 12
Lori Carroll has been named as the General Chair for the annual Children’s Shopping Tour. This year’s Tour will take place on Dec. 12 beginning at 8 a.m. at the Pampa Optimist Youth Club gym.
Carroll has been employed as an Assistant Vice-President and Lender for AIM Bank in Pampa for more than four years. She graduated from Fort Hays State University in Kansas with a bachelor’s degree in both accounting and finance and has been working in banking for 17 years.
She and her husband, Kelly, have been married for 15 years and are the parents of two-year-old Carter. They attend the First United Methodist Church in Pampa where she chairs the Finance Committee for the Church.
“I am excited that the children we serve will get to experience actual giving this Christmas in a setting they would not in ordinary life,” Carroll said. “They will be aided by volunteers from the community, who will help them select gifts for members of their families. The children do not buy presents for themselves.”
This year will be the 58th time the Children’s Shopping Tour has helped children understand the true meaning of Christmas.
