BALTIMORE — Christmas came a little early for 100 kids in Baltimore.

"Divine Light" partnered with one hundred strangers to give gifts to the children of the clients they serve.

Each child got four gifts and the parents wrote a letter to Santa telling him what their kids want, need, wear and read.

"Christmas is a hard time for our residents in our program a lot of times they want to give but they can't because they can't go home. So, we thought we'd do a Christmas wish list, shout out to all the donor to actually give them everything on their Christmas wish list,” said Sakina Dean, CEO of Divine Light.

Divine light provides drug treatment services and supportive housing for their clients to help combat the opioid epidemic in the city.
