Operation HELP's annual Campaign for Kids still needs sponsors for 21 Hudson area families in need of help this holiday season.

The program is geared to children. Sponsors provide gifts and other items to provide them with a good Christmas experience. Sponsors are also asked to provide appropriate underwear and socks for children, as these are items they need that are often overlooked.

All items should be placed in a large, dark colored plastic garbage bag and clearly marked with the family number that sponsors will receive. Include wrapping paper but do not wrap the gifts.

Drop off for the gifts is between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Dec. 3 and 4 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church (502 County Road UU, Hudson).

To sponsor a family, go to operationhelpstcroix.org and click on "Christmas sponsor" or call 715-386-0881.
