Starkville, MS(WCBI)-It’s an early Christmas surprise for some Starkville families thanks to staff at the OCH Wellness Center. Today they loaded one hundred gifts onto a truck to deliver to clients at Community Counseling Services.
The Wellness Center began accepting toy donations in November, and today, eight families received their gifts. Scott McCorkle of the Wellness Center explains why they chose to do t celebrate the holiday this way:
“We do it for the kids. You know most of us have kids of our own, and this is a way that we can give back and help out kids that don’t have any gifts. There’s no greater joy than watching kids opening gifts on Christmas morning.”
The OCH Wellness Center has been holding a Christmas Toy Drive for the past several years.
