With so many worthwhile causes trying to make the holiday season happy for people from all walks of life, Adult Protective Services is hoping area gift-givers will look to a slightly different demographic at Christmas.
Part of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, Adult Protective Services began the "Be a Star" program this week, collecting Christmas gifts for the area's elderly and disabled.
A tradition 20 plus years in the making continues this year when Canterbury hosts its annual Christmas Bazaar.
Area residents can take advantage of a unique shopping experience from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at 1700 S. Lancaster.
“This is a great place to bring grandma shopping,” Executive Director Shannon M. Nabors said.
