Local Group Makes Sure Children Have A Christmas

One local organization is working to keep Leon County kids from waking up on Christmas with no presents. The group is helping volunteers play Santa.

That’s volunteer Leanne Laggmann helping pick out some jeans for her sponsored children four year old Shawn and five year old Taraji. The nonprofit “Communities in Schools” selected the boys to go on what it calls a “mini-shopping” spree just in time for the holidays. It’s the second year the organization and its partners have run the event.
