Christmas Cram a success in Moss Bluff

MOSS BLUFF, LA (KPLC) -

Moss Bluff residents attempted to cram a cargo trailer full of toys over the weekend.
The idea of Century 21 Bessette realtor Lydia Holland, the "Christmas Cram" was organized to collect toys for underprivileged children in the Calcasieu and Beauregard school systems.
The Cram grew into a family day event where children could take part with the donation of a small gift. There were fun rides, jumps and plenty of food for those in attendance. 
Because of the generosity of sponsors and those attending, about 1200 children will get toys this year.
Deliveries  will take place this week. The Christmas Cram was held Enchanted Elegance Event Center in Moss Bluff.
