Lansing shines with holiday spirit
Events of the past few weeks show the spirit of Christmas alive and well in Lansing.
From the Kiwanis Club members ringing bells for the Salvation Army's Kettle Collection to those adopting a child through the Angel Tree at City Hall to the Lansing High School Kayettes soliciting for various projects, the ideals of volunteerism and giving are strong at play this holiday season.
Even behind the walls of the Lansing Correctional Facility, inmates are involved in actions to make the holidays a little brighter for some of those less fortunate. More than 400 bicycles are on their way to children through the prison's Christmas Bike Giveaway program.
And those are just some of the many examples taking place in Lansing this holiday season.
Congratulations go out to all of those who have helped or are in the process of helping others this Christmas. For those not yet touched with the Christmas spirit, there's still time to brighten someone else's holiday.
