christmas at operation breakthrough

There are many services offered by Operation Breakthrough throughout the year, but at Christmas they come fast and furious. This past weekend close to 750 Kansas City families saw their children's "wish lists" for the holidays actually materialize. Each family is "adopted out" to another family who has offered to take the wish list and actually shop for the toys, games, clothes, etc. The goodies (plus wrapping paper, of course) were distributed to appreciative moms and dads Saturday and Sunday in an extremely well-orchestrated and smooth operation involving a lot of committed volunteers and donors. Here are a few pictures I took of the goings on.
