Annual Martin de Porres Society Christmas Party

Santa's elves are working overtime, getting ready for Christmas. Last night, Martin de Porres Society volunteers loaded up the gifts they'll pass out to hundreds of needy people for the holiday.

They'll deliver some to homes and hand out the rest to children at the annual society Christmas party tonight. 

"Christmas is about giving, not about receiving, and that's what I'm trying to teach my children," said the society's Jeanne Seaver. "A lot of them are doing it because they want to do it. There are all kinds of volunteers in the community who are coming out there to see the faces of the kids."

They've invited more than 600 children for the 20th annual Christmas party for the kids.
