It’s about giving a well-deserving family a SURPRISE and a moment to forget about everything else they are dealing with whether it be a medical condition, loss of a family member or sudden hardship,” the website explains.

The surprises are custom to each family’s current situation, making the Christmas surprise extra special.

Donations from the community and area businesses make the giving possible, according to Jaclyn Pessel of Best Christmas Ever.

“You get more out of giving than you do receiving, and you can see by how many people were here that people want to give and to help and there’s so many good people out there,” Pessel told WFIN
