Those who signed up to go shopping at the store were helped out by a volunteer to pick out presents for their kids.

“A couple of toys for their children, each family gets a blanket, a bag of food, a ham, clothing, a hat a bag of toiletries,” Cathy Zirnheld, a Wayside Christian Mission volunteer, said. “So, they get a nice little Christmas for those who typically don’t have one.”
