Woman Who Helps Give Christmas to Families says Need is High
COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) -- A woman who's helped bring a brighter Christmas to those less fortunate for years says there's a strong need for donations this year.
Jynette Williams runs the program, Youth Rises Against All Odds.
She's holding a Christmas Gala on December 20th for families in need.
Williams says they received 248 applications.
"Some are still calling saying they really need help especially for those teenagers and I have to say I met my quota," said Williams.
Williams says she's getting help from the Marines Toys for Tots but the donations are what they have been in years past.
"I think the economy has caused a lot of things where stores used to donate couldn't," said Williams.
Williams' Christmas Gala will be December 20th at United Faith International Baptist Church.
