Beginning Dec. 12, residents in need are welcome to stop by the food pantry and stop by its Christmas House.
Residents in Clay County have donated several Christmas items to the pantry throughout the year. Currently, several rooms in the building, located at 506 E. Pinckley St., Brazil, are full of toys, clothes and other knick-knacks.
Haas said all families with children who come to the Christmas House will receive two outfits while the children 12-under will receive one toy.
The house is open for families with children. It will officially open Friday and Saturday, but only for families, which have scheduled appointments. Haas said the appointments have been filled.
But beginning Dec. 12, all families in need are welcome to stop by for the items, from 9 a.m.-noon.
"We have a good supply," Haas said. "We have towels and dishes. We try to save back for Christmas."
Haas said the Christmas House is loosely patterned after an event Catholic Charities of Terre Haute organizes. In fact, the Terre Haute organization donated some of the items in the local Christmas House.
