One local woman is giving back to those in need this weekend.

Cindy Mcarthur is hosting Sharing the Love! on Nov. 20th at 35 McLean St. in the Morrisroe Extension Hall between 1-3:30 p.m.

“We’re dedicating our time and love to help out parents who could use a boost this Christmas,” said Mcarthur, adding that anyone is welcome but they are hoping to target families who are in need.

Christmas baking will be available to help get those who need a hand in the Christmas spirit and there will be clothing and toys available as well.

“All of the items will be free for those in need,” said Mcarthur. “We wanted to start this event because together as a community, that is how we help families.”

She said the community can help as well by donating baking items like butter and flour.

Organizers also welcome anyone who is willing to volunteer and help bake items for the event.

Families can also bring clothing and toys to exchange if they have gently used items that their children have outgrown.

“If you have something to donate, it is welcomed, but if a family needs items and doesn’t have anything to donate, they can still come and get what they need,” said Mcarthur.

Santa will also be on site for free photos for kids and families for the duration of the afternoon.
