Employees also conducted health screenings free of charge.

They hope the gifts will make the holidays a little brighter for local children.

“We were able to receive donations of quite a few toys. And so, community partners really assisted us with this. So, I do believe that we will have some happy children on Christmas day which is the reason,” said Paulette Ferguson, Five Horizons.
