ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Catholic Charities on Jay Street was transformed into a Christmas shop on Thursday.
The items including toys, coats, and books were donated by the community. All of it is chosen from client wish lists.

“For us to be able to give clients the opportunity just to have this stuff means a lot because a lot of them are having a hard time fulfilling their families’ needs,” said Ally Ewing, development & community engagement coordinator at Catholic Charities. “So just to be able to give kids and adults something to open Christmas morning means a lot.”

More than 2,000 people are being helped this holiday thanks to the community’s generosity.
