Hundreds will have a brighter Christmas thanks to First Lutheran Church. Wednesday brought their annual Christmas Basket distribution.
With the help of several donors, the church put together 250 baskets for families. They feature food including turkeys and potatoes.
The goal is to help families have a happy Christmas.
Marian Wascher coordinates the effort and she said, “Even people that are working, they have a hard time making ends meet. Once you pay the rent, there's not enough money left for people to pay for food, for clothing, or whatever. And we're just here to help."
First Lutheran has been offering this service to families approximately 20 years.
