The donations from area merchants and residents has been a Lions project for over 60 years, providing needy families with a good meal at Christmas as well as gifts for youngsters who may not otherwise have anything under the tree.
Lions and other volunteers spent Monday night assembling the baskets at the VFW building then pasing them out Tuesday morning.
