Since 1976 The Independent-Messenger and Greensville Emporia Department of Social Services have asked the community for its help in making sure children that might not have a Christmas present under the tree would have a Christmas.

This year the community contributed $11,525 to the fund, which in turn produced Christmas presents for 186 children in the City of Emporia and Greensville County. Also adding to the annual Christmas present giveaway were Dominion Virginia Power and Fluor Construction.
