Christmas morning is just weeks away and thanks to the generosity from the community and local organizations, hundreds of families will have enough presents to go underneath the tree this holiday season.
Gilkey says he always looks forward to this time of the year when he gets to see the smiling faces of children who otherwise would not have any presents.
The money to purchase the dozens of Christmas presents came from Brice Long’s annual Back 2 Back Foundation concert that was held at the James E. Bruce Convention Center on Saturday, July 28th.
The concert raised over $33,000, which will remain within the community to help local families in need, especially during the holidays.
