KMXT once again sponsored the Giving Tree at Brother Francis Shelter this Christmas, providing gifts to patrons of the shelter. Brother Francis Shelter director Monty Hawver said the program was a success.

Hawver said the shelter served Christmas dinner to about 20 people and that the giving tree provided extra fun and good cheer.

Hawver said he is grateful for all those who helped make the annual event possible again this year.

The Giving Tree program has been taking place for the past several years, Hawver said, and he expects it to continue in years to come.
