Operation Santa helps to provide gifts for more than 200 local kids
Two trucks full of toys for more than 200 good girls at boys at Fairview Elementary School in Lansing. It's all part of Sparrow's annual Operation Santa program.
Sparrow Caregivers donated all kinds of gifts from board games to dolls, hats and mittens to bicycles. The donations go to help families in need during the holidays.
"We can't thank Sparrow enough for the generosity of everyone who donated," said Janice Marchal, principal at Fairview Elementary. "Many of the parents of kids at our school worry about buying Christmas gifts for their kids. For some it's either toys or paying the electric bill. Operation Santa takes the worry out of it and allows everyone to enjoy Christmas."
