As many people prepare to spend the holidays at home with their loved ones, there are some without a home this Christmas.
Workers at the Greenville Community Shelters are doing what they can to help make the holidays a little brighter for those staying there.
Shelter officials say every adult will get a gift bag filled with personal care items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, soap, blankets, and shower caddies. They also say people from the community adopted the shelter's children and bought gifts off their wish lists, including bicycles, games, clothing, books and other toys. The shelter says some of those presents will be delivered to families who recently left the shelter, while those currently staying there will open them Christmas morning.
Shelter director Lynne James says the shelter will have a buffet on Christmas day starting at 1:00 o'clock.
James says food donations are still needed. She says if you want to help, you can bring the food directly to the shelter on Christmas day. She says 36 kids and 78 adults will receive presents from the shelter this year.
