Lodi, you did it again. With your help and generosity, more than 1,100 underprivileged kids were given new clothing and toys. More than 150 bicycles were put under the tree, along with remote control cars, new shoes, shirts, pants and warm jackets.
Because of the big-heartedness of this community, Santa came for the 25th time on Dec. 15, 2012.
Lodi's Adopt-A-Child Board of Directors would like to personally thank each and every person and organizations who adopted a child, gave money or donated toys and bicycles. A special thanks goes to Mike and Kelly Lair, for playing Santa and Mrs. Claus.
On behalf of all of our kids, I want to thank you and hope your Christmas was blessed and merry, and your new year will be filled with peace, prosperity, health and happiness. God bless you all.
