Chairperson Carol Pluth said 597 people were served through Estherville's Community Christmas Program this year.

ABOVE:?Volunteers gathered early Tuesday morning to assist approved individuals in choosing gifts for their family members. Volunteering for Community Christmas Project is a two-day affair. Monday, after area churches and organizations drop off their donations of new toys, clothing, household items and more, volunteers sort, bundle and prepare them for display. The volunteers worked from 8 a.m . to 2:30 p.m. Monday, but in previous years it has taken until 5 p.m. Tuesday, they are on hand to make each patron's shopping experience go smoothly.
