Local Area Children are counting on you to make sure they have a Merry Christmas this year. Christmas is a time for celebrating, eating good food, opening gifts and being with the ones you love. Most of you would say it is the most joyous season of the year. However, others might disagree. Simply put, although most of you are fortunate enough to provide gifts for people you care about, the lady that lost her husband and is working to support her three kids making $20,000 a year is not so fortunate. To her, it is a time of struggle and a time of disappointment because she cannot provide what she would like to for her children.
