Helping Hand: Joining the Salvation Army in spreading Christmas cheer for families in need
Each year, for two days during the month of December, the Wichita Salvation Army holds its "Christmas Angel Tree" gift distribution. It’s where hundreds of volunteers help thousands of people and families pick up some extra holiday cheer.
“They will stream like this all day long and all day tomorrow as well," said Craig Davis, Director of Community Engagement.
A few weeks before Christmas, hundreds of volunteers help make the process run smoothly, during a time when things may be tough.
“I’m a stay at home mom. I have a medical condition that has caused me not to be able to work. My husband is just now starting out on a job. He’s at work. My kids are at school," said Amand Pitzer, who was receiving help.
Hearing stories from mothers like Amanda is the reason DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers teamed up with Eyewitness News, to give them a helping hand and $100.
“It’s for my kids, this actually finishes up my Christmas shopping right here," said Pitzer.
