WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - In spite of the bitter cold, the Youth Opportunities Center in Wichita Falls held their third annual Christmas giveaway to provide assistance to local families.

With inflation on the rise, many nonprofits are struggling to help everyone in need. The YOC took up the challenge of helping out however they can.

“A lot of the places come through and they do good for people, but you know, there’s always those people don’t have rides to get to the appointments, or don’t have the means to get there,” YOC Executive Director Madeline Chappell said. “So this is our opportunity to give back to them.”

They took donations throughout the year and allowed families in need to come by to fill bags with goodies; including shoes, clothes, toys and food.
