Kathy Dryja's garage in Plymouth is filled up with hundreds of gifts and none of them are for her three daughters.
The boxes are for the less fortunate under a program with Peanut Butter and Jelly Outreach, Inc. Underneath the wrapping paper is a shoebox filled with toiletries and warm clothing items.
“Bare essentials: hats, chapstick, lotion, shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste,” says Kathy.
Also included, a signed Christmas card with well wishes.
Kathy started creating these boxes 9 years ago. Then, she did 5 boxes with her kids and now it's grown to a packing party. More than 100 people came over to her house to pack 1,065 boxes.
“It’s not about me getting a hug or a pat on the back, it’s about me knowing that I’m helping someone even if I don’t see that someone. I can’t imagine never doing it now. This is our Christmas. Christmas is about helping others,” says Kathy.
