MESQUITE - Santa's Helpers helps Sharing Life Community Outreach in Mesquite ensure it's clients have toys for their children at Christmas.
On a daily basis, Sharing Life provides food, clothing, and financial assistance to those in need.
Many are barely getting by, often unable to feed or cloth their family let alone buy presents.
"It is not just the fact that they got a toy, it is what that toy represents," said a Sharing Life spokeswoman. "And that toy represents hope, especially even for the parents."
Hope that despite the tough economic conditions they are currently facing, this Christmas might be a bit brighter, thanks to the generous donations to Santa's Helpers.
