Secret Santa in Lawrence County

Dec. 20, 2012 @ 11:20 AM

SOUTH POINT, Ohio -- Some of Santa's helpers have been very busy this season, raising money to purchase gifts for about 440 children in Lawrence County.

The Lawrence Young Professionals, a group affiliated with the Greater Lawrence County Area Chamber of Commerce, has overseen the Lawrence County Secret Santa program for the fourth year, raising about $50 per child in need of Christmas gifts. The group began distributing the gifts on Sunday.

With this year's gifts purchased, the Young Professionals are already setting their sights on raising money for next year. Donations can be sent to the Lawrence Economic Development Corporation/Secret Santa, P.O. Box 488, South Point, OH 45680.
