Spreading Christmas Cheer

by Christa Lollis

An East Texas family had their first Christmas today. The local DAV heard a story of 5 kids who weren't going to have a Christmas. Immediately they got together, raised money and had presents piled under a Christmas tree for the kids. They opened some today but kept a few to open on Christmas day. Their grandmother, who is their caregiver, says without the DAV, there wouldn't have been a Christmas. The grandmother says without the local churches and shelters she wouldn't have been able to give her grandchildren the life she knows they deserve.
