They held their annual Christmas party for the kids at their hospitals, and our very own Neysa Wilkins was there to sing.

They raise money throughout the year to buy gifts for the children and make sure to get a list to Santa Clause so the kids get exactly what they want.

They couldn't hold their Christmas party last year, so they said they were so excited to be able to do it again this year.

David "Mac" McMillan of the Shaddai Shriners, said, "They let us have the lunchroom here at the school and just to see the kids smile and run, that means it all, it's enough said - just a smile."

The Christmas party was a way to have the children back with their families to celebrate the holiday.
