In its ninth year, LVHA’s “Fill a Bag with Cheer” program paired the organization’s members up with children from Harvey N. Dondero Elementary School. Each member then compiled a personalized holiday bag for their child based on a list of items that particular child needs: shoes, coats, socks, blankets, gloves, hats, jogging outfits, books, toys and clothes. Representatives from LVHA visited the school today and personally delivered the bags to the children.
