St. Mary's of Michigan holds annual Christmas Shop for families in need

SAGINAW (WJRT) -

(12/13/13) - Gifts under the tree make Christmas merry for children. Friday, hundreds of kids got their holiday wishes, thanks to a giveaway in Saginaw.
    
It took place at St. Mary's hospital. Tables of new toys and racks of unworn clothes were given to families in need.

Volunteers kept busy, helping families pick out the perfect gifts for their kids - even wrapping the presents to make sure they are Christmas morning ready.

"It's just St. Mary's way of giving back to the community, a lot of these families are from right around here in the St. Mary's Cathedral District," said Cindy McQuarter, Clinical Aid Manager at the hospital.

Organizers collected enough items to help 150 families, which included 320 children.

Santa Claus also made an appearance at the event.
