Debbie Sinopoli and Associates Realtor in Hattiesburg are making Christmas a little merrier for an area family.
They decided this year to adopt an area family for Christmas instead of exchanging gifts between themselves. The family of five they adopted is and a 82-year-old-great grandmother and her four young grand children who she is raising by herself. The co-workers all pitched in to purchase presents and toys and presented them to the family at a small Christmas party Wednesday.
"We are very excited, it's been like Santa's workshop here for the past week," said Peggy Montgomery, Realtor. "There's only eight of us and they exceeded everyone's expectations."
Next year they plan on adopting a senior for Christmas.
