East Texas Crisis Center Needs Your Help

More East Texas kids are depending on the generosity of others to find presents under the tree this Christmas. The East Texas Crisis Center has set up a tree at Brookshires in the Bergfeld Shopping Center. On that tree, you will find a Christmas wish list for children at the Crisis Center.

Store managers say they have had lots of response so far, but there are still around 15 wish lists on the tree and it's up to East Texans to make sure those kids have presents for Christmas.

"This kind of gives everybody a new lease on life and at Christmas time especially when you've been pulled up and moved around. It's important to have something that gives you something to think about and remember what Christmas is all about," says Jimmie Horton, Store Director.

The managers say you can shop for the kids right up till Christmas Eve. The gifts will be taken to the Crisis Center for the kids Christmas morning.
