Children buy gifts for family members thanks to Jaycees

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS/WATERLOO (KWWL) Blain's Farm and Fleet in Cedar Falls opened its doors an hour early Saturday morning.

It was all so 82 children could buy Christmas gifts for their family members.

"Gift of Giving" is organized by the Waterloo Jaycees. It's a more than 35 year tradition.

Children age six to 12 who are under-privileged or at-risk shopped with an adult volunteer. Each child got $35 to buy gifts for siblings and parents.

The money comes from various Jaycees fundraisers throughout the year.
