On Friday, the Christmas Bureau wrapped up its last day at the fairgrounds, completing its quest to make Christmas happier for families in need. This year it served 32,060 people, distributing toys for 16,124 children and providing food vouchers for 9,877 households. The charity, which is organized by Catholic Charities, Volunteers of America and The Spokesman-Review, relies on reader donations to continue its 67-year-old tradition of helping low-income families. It still needs more than $75,000 to reach $525,000, the amount needed to fund the books, toys and food vouchers distributed.
