While you're out shopping for your friends and family this holiday season, think about grabbing an extra gift for a child in need.

Whitney Martin from WIFR is pretty much one of the nicest people I know. She's always giving back to the community on her own and spreading awareness about those in need in the Rockford area.

Today, I came across this post of hers on Facebook and wanted to share it with you before the holiday shopping season officially begins.

 

The Northwest Community Center would need your gifts on or before December 15, so if you're out shopping before then and can drop off a gift for the party, that would be amazing.

Gifts are being collected at the center, 1325 North Johnson.
