FORT WAYNE, Ind. — 364 boxes of gifts. 6 bikes. 33 families helped. And one very special Christmas.
For decades, Concordia Lutheran High School has been gathering and donating gifts to the Christmas Bureau for children in need. This year, 33 families (117 individuals in all – with 36 adults, 21 teenagers, 47 grade school children, and 13 babies) will benefit from the many donations from students, faculty and staff.
Of the 355 families that the Christmas Bureau served this year, 33 of them were from Concordia.
The students spent the morning wrapping and packaging gifts to be delivered to the families. A truck, filled nearly to the brim, was then packed up and taken to the Christmas Bureau.
Christmas cheer was felt by all!
