For over a century the Arctic League in Elmira has helped those in need on Christmas.
“It makes a Merry Christmas for a number of people,” says Bob Haskins, the President at the Arctic League.
“It’s a real pleasure working with so many dedicated people that give their time and effort to come out and work throughout the year and get the gifts ready and the people that show up Christmas Day to deliver them,” Haskins continues.
“I’ve been doing this for 23 years this Christmas and I enjoy giving back what was given to me as a little girl so it just warms my heart,” says volunteer Jeannie Strock.
“Everybody should have a Christmas no matter whether you earn millions of dollars are you dont earn anything,” adds Dylan McGan, also a volunteer.
