Some low-income families are looking forward to Christmas even more now that they have some decorations and a tasty meal.
The Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission got to work Tuesday afternoon delivering free Christmas trees, turkeys and side dishes to families in need, and seniors in Northeast Reno.
It's a part of the Gospel Mission's Random Acts of Kindness Campaign.
Many of the families who got the free food and trees say it was a surprise that will make their Christmas a whole lot brighter.
"Many people are not expecting that. Many people like to pull together and knock on your door, and say, 'hey, you know what can I come and bring you a Christmas tree, a turkey,' that's what Christmas is all about, just people coming and loving one another" said Gloria Rodriguez, who was surprised by the gifts.
The Rodriguez family didn't have a Christmas tree until Tuesday. They say it's already filling their apartment with the scent of Christmas.
