Remember the "Santa Express" the Bend Fire Department held a couple of weeks ago?  Well,  the families are about to receive their Christmas gifts.

 

Cindy Kettering with the Salvation Army Advisory Board says they are helping a huge number of families this year.  "My understanding is there are over 1000 families. Some of them a just going to be getting food, some of them, those with children will be getting clothing and toys for the kids. We've been packing up bags for quite some time now and it's always a great experience when we're distributing those bags; just the families that would have had nothing for the kids."

 

Kettering says the giveaway is Wednesday all day long and for her, being involved in the giveaway is "what makes the holidays" for her.
