The holidays are a time of giving. And for those families who may be facing difficult times, two local organizations are making this time of year a little easier.
Members of the Vestal Elks Lodge bought presents for more than 100 children.
Monday they brought the gifts to the Catholic Charities Office in Binghamton, where volunteers sorted through the presents.
Organizers say they love seeing the family's reactions.
"We look forward to this every year. I mean, this is what we do. We make sure everyone has what they need and put a smile on all the kids faces. And that's a great gift for us," said Mary Whitcombe, Program Manager at Catholic Charities.
The presents are being delivered Monday and Tuesday, just in time for Christmas.
