Children gathered this week for Christmas parties and helped pack up the care packages. Those gifts were delivered throughout the Jacobsville neighborhood Friday.

Those receiving the holiday meals say it's overwhelming to see how much others care and that it makes Christmas morning so special for their children.

"They'll be excited, they're always happy, and they just, I mean they're great kids," Santa Claus told 14 News. "Especially with everybody what they're doing here they're going to be twice as happy, I know they'll wake up with smiles on their face Christmas morning."

Volunteers say this season's Christmas blitz helped nearly 500 families in the area.
