Holiday Shopping for a Family in Need
Youth and Family Services Agency

La Grange Anchors were thrilled to be able to assist in making Christmas a bit more cheery and blessed for a family of ten living in our area. The family was currently being counseled and assisted by the non-profit agency, Youth and Family Services, for drug and alcohol abuse. Six children ranging in age from 4 - 16 were in the home along with parents and two grandparents. The family qualified for public housing on the 15th of December, and had absolutely nothing to move into the home.

The La Grange Anchors enjoyed a mini shopping "spree" at Wal-Mart using the  names and individual Christmas wish list of the family's children to carefully select gifts for each. Three of the Anchors then wrapped and put to and from tags on the packages. Two pair of socks for each child was also purchased along with toilet tissue and paper towels. After carefully watching the budget for shopping, it was decided that the extra dollars would be used to purchase an HEB gift card.

Assistant Anchor Advisor, Mandi Rainosek, then delivered all the Christmas bounty to Twyla Dodson, the YFS caseworker.
