"The late WGY personality Don Weeks always wanted to do something to help the needy people,” said Kendra Curtis of Curtis Lumber. “He started out by giving mittens and that went such a long way that he decided to make this a thing. It's grown ever since."

NewsChannel 13's Kelly Lynch was one of the on-air personalities at the event.
