(Aitkin, MN) — The phone lines will be active Monday with Aitkin County families signing up for Operation Christmas, which gives a good Christmas for needy families this season all thanks in part to the generosity of community members and local businesses.

In our conversation with event organizer Tawny Druar, donations of gifts and cash can be sent to these local businesses.

Gifts for Aitkin County children do range for boys and girls.

Druar also mentioned that cash donations are also accepted.
