GOLDEN VALLEY - Golden Valley American Legion Post 22 is trying to make one family's life warmer for Christmas.
The post is collecting monetary, clothing, furniture and other donations for a family of nine - five adults and four children - whose home burned down Dec. 13. There are two toddlers, an infant and a newborn.
The women need size 17 and 14 clothing. The men wear size 32 to 34 pants.
The post donated $200 to the family, and the women's and men's auxiliaries each donated $100.
A couch and a TV have also been collected, and the Pistoleros and Roses have joined the effort by donating a bag of toys to the children.
Residents who want to help the family can drop items off at American Legion Post 22, at 3435 N. Verde Road in Golden Valley, or at one of the collection barrels placed throughout the valley.
