Community effort helps less fortunate enjoy Christmas

Have you ever wondered what it's like to not have enough money to get anything for Christmas? There are some people in our community who don't get a single present for Christmas! Saints Cyril and Methodius Roman Catholic Church in Deer Park gathers people in our community to help families get some things that they would like. Everyone gets assigned a number and a list. You have to buy as many presents as you can. Next you put the presents in garbage bags. But do not throw them away. Each bag has the number you bought the presents for. You put the presents in the bag and seal it. They ship the presents to all the houses that needed presents, which is more than 100 families. The present wrapping takes hours! When you leave, you will feel like you did something to help others.
