Costco employees at the Tallahassee store raised money for three store officials to donate to the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth Christmas Program Wednesday, Dec. 22 and help a less fortunate family in Wakulla County.

The Crawfordville family includes a mother and father and seven children. Costco Manager Tom Burns was accompanied by Kimberly Crowe and Mark Hern, a.k.a. Santa Claus. They presented a truckload of gifts to Wakulla Coalition for Youth President Lt. Bruce Ashley at the sheriff’s office shortly before driving to the home of the family and distributing the gifts. Turkeys were also donated to the family so they can have a Christmas meal.

“Everyone jumped on board,” said Manager Burns. “It sure makes a difference at the holidays.” Kimberly Crowe added that having the opportunity to purchase gifts for the children was rewarding for her.

“We have really had an outpouring of support,” said Lt. Ashley of the coalition’s Christmas project. “I was just overwhelmed.”

    Besdies the Birth of Jesus Christ, this is what Christams is all about giving freely of yourself to others! If people were like this all year round this would be a better world! Merry Christmas Everyone! Being a mother myself I know this meant the world to these parents for their children to be able to have Christmas presents under the tree on Christmas morning. God bless you all who had a hand in this! And to every one who donates for the less fortunate at Christmas or all year round, it will come back to you in one way or another. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
