The "Magic of Christmas" on Display with Olum's Charity Drive

The Vestal Olum's along with a radio station as well as Shafer's Tour and Charter worked to help those in need have a Merry Christmas.

The event was fittingly known as the "Magic of Christmas." Of course, the radio station Magic 101.7 was one of the event's organizers.

The goal today was to fill a Shafer bus with Christmas presents that will be delivered to the Rescue Mission for those in need.

Fox 40 spoke with Lisa Cruz of Magic and asked if this is about creating a Merry Christmas for some local kids. She says yes, but there's more to it.

Lisa Cruz of Magic 101.7 says, "It's about awareness and we have ten different charities inside that are here to help our area as well as receive help. So, if anything it's going to be to bring awareness, I'm showcasing each different charity on the air. Trying to help and get the word out."

The drive also accepted used books, non-perishable food items and used blankets.

All in all, it was a chance to show off the Southern Tier's continued generosity.
