Spreading the wealth - Christmas gifting customs in 2014 rural Michigan, USA
So much material wealth - Christmas bags for families short of spending money
The area charity for distributing baby supplies, clothing and food holds a Christmas party each year. People willing to adopt one or more of the baby pantry children receive a wishlist of things for child and parent(s). The purchases then are wrapped, labeled and assembled on the eve of the final decoration and food preparations of Friday. The Saturday from 10 to 2 p.m. the families show up for crafts, presents to pick up for their own collection under their Christmas tree, and tasty food.
