Santa Claus has many helpers on slate for the Operation Gift wrap Saturday. Volunteers poured into the Southcrest Baptist Church early this morning to wrap over 1,000 gifts for those in need.

The gifts will be donated to local homeless men and women this Christmas. If interested in volunteering feel free to come by the 2nd floor of the Southcrest Baptist church, which has been transformed into the North Pole. The event began at 10 a.m.
