Needy Elkhart families get gifts


Many needy families in Elkhart are grateful this holiday season.

That's because they received gifts through the Salvation Army's Adopt-a-family program.

Over 800 families signed up for this year's drive.

Gifts included clothes, toys and even a Christmas tree.

Organizers say the entire program has brought a lot of joy to the community.

"Its a fun day they get to see gifts that are wrapped, toys and its just a great warm feeling and its a good day," says Steven Woodard of the Salvation Army.

One contributor even donated a set of bikes for an entire family.
