East Sider hopes to bring holiday cheer to less-fortunate

Larson-Allen using social media to spearhead gift giving campaign

While some families may already have bought a myriad of gifts for the largest retail season of the year, LeeAnn Larson-Allen's mind is on those who might not be exchanging any gifts at all.
To that end, she's been running a small-time, East Side-based effort to get holiday gifts in the hands of East Siders who can't afford them for the past four years. Starting small, her first year she helped out three fellow East Side families, and it grew from there. This year, she's helped connect 40 families with sponsors, who help out strangers with Christmas gifts, and she's not through yet — she's hoping to surpass that by Dec. 25.
