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.

Jerry Glenn

President

Lodi Adopt-A-Child

    This is an excerpt from the article:

    Because of the big-heartedness of this community, Santa came for the 25th time on Dec. 15, 2012.

    What about the other 364 days a year? How come so many people get together to help those in need only once or twice a year? Are the homeless and hungry okay the other 364 or 363 days in the year? Are they any less homeless, or hungry?

    No, this isn't about the disadvantaged or the have-nots, this is a feel good act for the haves who feel guilty because they ignore those who are in need the other 363, or 364 days a year!

    Who do you think you're fooling?
