Christmas Baskets will spread cheer for needy families


Volunteers at the National Cattle Congress helped St. Vincent de Paul spread Christmas cheer.

Toys donated from Toys from Tots and other programs filled a room where Saturday people will come and receive a helping hand for Christmas.

The collected items go into St. Vincent de Paul's Christmas basket program, along with winter coats, and traditional Christmas dinners.

"We're here all year long and we appreciate the people in the Cedar Valley for providing the toys from the Toys for Tots program and Columbus High School for helping and providing food for us to give away. It isn't just one person doing this it takes lots of people to help,"said coordinator Karen Buchanan.

The basket program services more than 500 area families.  The baskets will be picked up and distributed Saturday morning.
