There will a few more smiles around this area this Christmas thanks to ABATE.

The members of the local chapter of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education of Ohio and West Ohio Community Action Partnership went shopping Wednesday evening at Walmart to buy Christmas presents for 70 local kids. ABATE raises the money for the presents during their annual Toy Run and this year's participants were in the giving spirit, enough to buy 55 dollars worth of toys and clothes for each child. This is the highest amount of money they have ever spent per child. 

"Some of the parents can pay the bills and get food on the table, but when it comes to Christmas time they are always trying to stretch that dollar a little bit more for Christmas. That is where we step in and try and buy them the Christmas Toys. That way they can keep their rent, keep their house, and have good food too," said Dana Frost
