Christmas Magic

By Staff Reports

DEKALB CO., Ala.—Christmas is a magical time for children. They can not wait for Santa to arrive with their presents. Sadly, some children in the Dekalb County area will not have anything under the tree this Christmas.

Last year, several people felt the need to help those less fortunate. It started with a 5k run in Sylvania before the Christmas parade. Through donations, eight children received clothes, gifts, Christmas dinners, and Bibles. This year, with the help of several local churches and donations, twenty-two children were provided with Bibles, coats, clothes, socks, shoes and toys.  Meals were provided from several local restaurants for the family.

For two years, Southern Torch Sports Editor, Marla Jones and a slew of volunteers, have bought and delivered gifts to those in need. “I am honored and blessed to be able to do this. The Lord has richly blessed this endeavor and I could never do this without help from friends and family,” Jones said. “I would like to personally thank everyone who has been involved.”
