CHIPPEWA COUNTY Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Christmas will be here before you know it and one area non-profit is working to make sure children have presents to unwrap this year. The spirit of Christmas of Chippewa County has been serving children in need for over 30 years.

The goal is to give kids something to look forward to during the holiday season. Some of the gifts include hygiene products, toys, and books. The organization also tries to provide each child with one full outfit. 

“Once a year, every child should have the time to be a child, kick back, get a toy, get a book to read, have fun. And if we can provide that a little bit of joy for a couple of days.”

There are over 250 applications so far. Applications are being accepted through November 25th. You can find applications online or in person at the Chippewa County courthouse in room 304.
