Hundreds of Westfield families can't afford to buy their children Christmas presents.

The combined annual incomes of the top ten Christian charities in the United Kingdom is just over half a billion pounds.

There has been a "spike in demand" this year and they are looking for volunteers to help them out during the critical final week. "Without sufficient donations to the kettle campaign, I am concerned about our ability to meet the need for social services and continue providing the same level of service across the region".

Salvation Army representative Captain Steve Spencer was over the moon, especially after being the target of thieves this week. It also provides some funding for the Christmas programs.

La Crosse area families are getting some help to make their holiday season a little more festive.
