Christmas Connection

The Christmas Connection is once again open for business, and that business is making sure hundreds of needy families have a happy holiday.

There are many Katrina evacuees in Tallahassee who need help this year. This family lost everything and has decided to stay and start over.

There is a 10-year-old boy, his parents and his grandmother. He'd like a new bike, the whole family needs winter coats and clothes, boys size 14-16, women's sizes 10 and 14 and men's size extra large.

Both parents are looking for work. There are more than 800 families on the Christmas Connection list. This is case number 52.

You can take donations to 100 West Tharpe Street or log on to for more information.
