The Oak Ridge Youth Advisory Board members recently voted to spend time and money Christmas shopping at Kmart for area children through Mission of Hope.
The board raises funds at various events throughout the year to make this possible, a press release said.
The board spent a total of $1,664.73 on gifts.
The release said the YAB wants to encourage other student groups and families to consider projects that help those in need, while also reminding everyone to shop in Oak Ridge.
