At-Risk Children Celebrate Christmas
Today is the day hundreds of area children have been waiting for. It’s the gift giveaway at Highfields.
The program serves children with behavioral problems and offers after school programs to those at risk. The annual event, scheduled for this afternoon at the Highfield’s Lansing Office, will give out gifts to more than 500 children–infant to 17–just in time for the holidays.
Organizers say the program, which serves 11 counties in Michigan, is the only thing coming between these children and a Christmas with no presents..
