The gymnasium at Kreamer Street Elementary School was brimming with toys and gifts on Tuesday night. Hundreds of parents lined up to go shopping for free Christmas gifts, which the Lighthouse Mission began collecting last month. This marks the fifth year the mission has held the event at the elementary school, according to Pastor James Ryan. Volunteers from area churches teamed up with teachers decked out as elves, staying after school to help give back.
