Families get Christmas Wish meal, gifts

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Ten families are getting a special meal this holiday season.

Families from the Ronald McDonald House teamed up with Memorial for a free private lunch for the 13th annual Christmas Wish.

Some of the participating families are struggling financially and have been hit with health problems. The lunch is just one way to give back to the community.

"It's an opportunity for the community to come back. To support those families who are often in crisis and who are in need struggling with a disease. That can often be very financially troubling as well as mentally and emotionally," said Bill Lee, vice president of Memorial Health.

The families departed the event with plenty of Christmas gifts from Memorial Hospital.
