Local Union Collects Gifts For Kids

Hundreds of children in the Kanawha Valley will have a special Christmas thanks to a local union. Teamsters Local 175 delivered more than $17,000 in food and toys to the Children's Home Society at its Davis Child Center in Charleston after members donated goods during its December union meeting. A representative from the Teamsters Local 175 says they've also received support from others in the community, including Big Lots in Kanawha City and Save-A-Lot in Charleston. The Children's Home Society will have its annual distribution for children of all ages this Friday and Saturday. The Children's Home Society provides emergency youth shelters, foster care and adoption, as well as other programs to help children and families. For more information, go to WSAZ.COM
