(WJBK) - The holiday connection project is all about connecting people who want help, with people who need it.
This year Volunteers of America and Gardner White team up to help a mother of 11 who struggles to give her family the Christmas they deserve after a fire two years ago.
"I didn't have anything to give my children, the only thing I gave them was the love of God and the knowledge of God, so as we were praying, God answered our prayer through Volunteers of America and I am grateful," Mia Tillman said.
Fox 2 and Gardner White have teamed up every year since 2001 to create the giving guide for the event. People can also stop by Gardner White and adopt a family through Volunteers of America.
