WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A little bit of generosity allowed parents and kids to cruise on the Henrietta boat this morning.

It's the 19th annual Cruise to the North Pole event.

People donated six non-perishable food items to ride the boat along the Cape Fear River.

Santa and clowns entertained the kids during the two hour cruise.The best part? all the food goes to help families in need during the holidays.

You can still donate items to the Salvation Army. They are located downtown at 820 North 2nd Street.
