Midlands Families in Need this Holiday Season

Some of the people who benefit from Stuff A Bus

Columbia, SC (WLTX)- It's tradition for kids to make lists of what they want for Christmas, but hundreds of children in the Midlands may wake up Christmas morning with nothing under their tree.

There are plenty of families in need of toys to provide to their children this holiday season. 

News 19 and Salvation Army are teaming up again this year for Stuff-a-Bus, the annual campaign aimed at raising enough toys and donations for children.

Single mother of three, Jessica Simpson, said this drive is the only way her kids can wake up to presents on Christmas morning.

"It takes a lot of pressure off of me like I wouldn't have to worry if they wake up Christmas morning whether they'll have gifts under the tree to open," she said. "I know they'll have something there."
