Tri-cities social services expects a lot more families will need help this holiday season. Social workers say they expect to help as many as 600 this holiday season. That's at least 200 more families than last year.
Collen miller says every year she wonders if there will be enough donations to go around. "But we have such a wonderful outpouring of support from our community that we're always able to provide enough assistance for the clients we've signed up."
Social services will make sure that each person who applies for help truly needs it. Once they qualify, they will receive a food box for a family of six, and one gift for each child.
