Downtown Rescue Mission holds Christmas party

Posted: Updated:

The Downtown Rescue Mission held its annual Community Children's Christmas Party Saturday.

More than 350 children were treated to Christmas gifts they wouldn't normally have. Santa and his elves made an appearance. Volunteers said the event was a major success.

"I've had a couple of parents coming up to me so grateful, so overwhelmed, because other than this, other than our community stepping up helping to provide for their kids, (they) wouldn't have anything for Christmas," said Lisa Young of the Downtown Rescue Mission.
