It's the day before Thanksgiving, but for one local Red Cross chapter, it's the equivalent to Christmas Eve.
Individuals and organizations have already vowed to answer the holiday wishes of nearly 600 children whose families applied to the Red Cross program, but there are still about 40 remaining.
If you'd like to help a child have a merry Christmas, call 540-735-0502, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit 4836 Southpoint Parkway, Fredericksburg, Va.
