LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is on a mission to help hundreds of children have a Merry Christmas.
And that means a lot of shopping.
Frankie Hilbert set a goal to raise $15,000 and adopt 150 angels through the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program.
We caught up with him Wednesday night at the Oxmoor Kohl's, where a group was carefully selecting items from the children's lists.
"I don't ever want a child to not be able to have a Christmas," Hilbert said. "So if there's anything that I can do to help avoid that and be able to make sure that these kids have a Christmas, I'll do anything."
Hilbert is just about $2,000 shy of his goal of $15,000 dollars. If he reaches it, a donor has agreed to match it so he can help a total of 300 angels.
