Christmas cheer will come early for hundreds of local kids on Friday.
Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada and its volunteers have been spending several weeks, filling up stockings for children whose families cannot afford to buy gifts this year.
The stockings are stuffed with toys, games, sweets, warm clothing and toiletries all of which were donated by our community.
The stockings will be ready for the annual "Operation Stocking Stuffer" holiday party at St. Vincent's Dining Room in downtown Reno.
Friday's party includes a visit with Santa, cookies and treats, plus free flu shots and immunizations.
