Charities and do-gooders are gearing up to help the less fortunate have happier holidays this year.
Santa’s Helpers provides gifts to families that might not otherwise have presents to open at Christmas. Lisa Uecker talked to organizers about it. Make sure you read her story and get the scoop on what you can do to “help to make the season bright” for “tiny tots with their eyes all a glow.”
Laurie Tapia and friends at the American Legion are also hoping to start a holiday tradition of sharing. They plan to host a free holiday meal for less fortunate residents in Sibley County. Orangizers hope to serve 500 people this year.
Tapia, who is heading up the project is currently looking for donations of food or money for the holiday meal. She plans to serve turkey or ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, coleslaw, bread, pumpkin dessert, ice cream, coffee and milk.
If you would like to donate, call Laurie Tapia at the American Legion Club in Gaylord at 507-237-9976.
