For the second year in a row now, Derek and Nancy Porter have collected and handed out Christmas boxes to families in the area. The Porter’s collected and handed out 25 boxes filled with toys and gifts for kids. The boxes had gifts for those from six months to 16 years old and were handed out to residents in Cochrane, Iroquois Falls and Timmins. They saw tears of joy, laughter and got lots of support from the local families making all the hard work and long hours worth it. Local children got to enjoy a little something extra under the tree this year and the Porter’s would like to thank everyone who donated to support the cause.
