The Columbus Grove American Legion is helping to make Christmas miracles come true this afternoon at their annual Christmas for the Children event this afternoon. 

The event is aimed to raise money to provide Christmas presents to low-income families in Putnam County.  

The Vendor Bazaar held at the Columbus Grove American Legion charges both the vendors and those who attend. All of the proceeds raised go directly to Putnam County Family Services so that they can purchase Christmas presents for the kids. The event raised $200 last year and already met that goal halfway through the event this afternoon. 

"It's all about the children, and the excitement in their face when they unwrap something. I just feel for the families that can't actually buy that themselves. We want to make sure they have something under their tree," says Event Coordinator Casey Burkholder. 

Burkholder says that the event is held in early November so that Putnam County Family Services has time to purchase the presents for a wide variety of families.
