LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Friday, Pancho Clos and Frosty the Snowman played Santa for some local families.
Dozens of volunteers showed up in Central Lubbock to help the Church of the Blessed give away 2,000 toys to families in need. "As the need that I'm seeing this year, I know that we've been in a recession and there's such a great need within the children right now that they have not been able to receive from their parents what they would normally receive, said Pastor Jonnie Perez, Church of the Blessed.
The church also gave out blankets and bags of food. This is the 9th year for the giveaway.
