NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Nacogdoches Christmas Blessings is a week away. The event allows qualified parents and guardians to shop and purchase Christmas gifts for children in their family.
On Wednesday, volunteers filled shopping carts with purchased toys, but had to leave two carts behind because there wasn't enough money to pay for them.
Organizers say it's not too late to drop off a monetary or new toy donation off at the Love In The Name of Christ offices on Ruby Street.
"We have validated about 600 children which is about 260 families," said Patti Goo," said Patti Goodrum. Love INC. "We are down in gifts this year, so we had to try to raise funding to buy the gifts ourselves."
