The CAC started what they call Holiday Hopes back in 2011. It provides Christmas gifts for children in need within the Gulf Coast CAC's program.

This year, they say they have the most kids in need they've ever had.

They have around 500 kids total they sponsor, and they still have between 100 to 150 who need sponsors.

"If folks don't have the time to go shopping, we are taking donations and we have volunteers who are going out and doing the shopping, they can go to our website, come by and drop those off, if they do want to sponsor a child, if they could get with us as soon as they can," said Brent Patrick with the Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center.

Sponsoring a child involves buying gifts from a list provided by the family or donating money for volunteers to buy gifts.
