KPLC's Community Christmas a success

By Michael Addison - email

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - It's officially a success, KPLC's Community Christmas.

Thanks to Southwest Louisiana's generosity, we're able to feed all 500 families.

It was a little slow going earlier in the week, but the community really stepped up to help us. Becky Derise of the American Red Cross says that means 1,700 kids and 250 parents will be getting food and toys this Christmas.

Everything will be distributed to our families this Thursday.
