OLATHE, Kan. -- Thousands of families in need are getting help this holiday season from the Johnson County Christmas Bureau.

Families who qualify through the state go through and get food, warm clothes and gifts for their families - all donated from local organizations.

They will serve more than 12,00 people this year.

And for some, without this charity, they would not have a Christmas at all.

"I'm going to go around and shop with a helper to basically get the spirit of Christmas to my boys this year," Overland Park resident Paige Tuley. "It's been a rough road the last 11 years but my three boys are all I have."

Tuley adds that she hopes to be able to give back to the community what they have given to her and her boys.
