LT spreads holiday cheer

A total of 160 needy local children will be surprised this holiday season with clothing, school items and toys thanks to Lyons Township High School elves. The elves are actually students, faculty members, classes, teams, clubs, departments or offices participating in the Rotary Club of LaGrange’s Secret Santa program. The program is designed to match a group with an area child, and let the group be Santa for that youngster. For many families, the gifts provided by Secret Santa are the only gifts under their tree. Groups collect between $125-150 per child then shop for gifts specifically for their child. The gifts are then presented to the family and distributed at the holiday.
