Ada, MN — The spirit of giving is abundant in the Ada community this week as the Ada Future Leaders began delivering toys and other gifts to area families as part of their annual Gifts for Youth campaign. Nearly 100 children will receive gifts this year that they may not have gotten one otherwise. Ada Future Leaders President Scott Erickson says even though the pandemic halted many of their fundraising events this year, it was vitally important they continue the Gifts for Youth tradition as they knew the demand would be there for it.

As always the community stepped up in a big way. The Gifts for Youth is a major undertaking for the group, and Erickson says from donations to even wrapping presents, it was a full community effort that will eventually lead to smiles on many children’s faces this Christmas.

The Ada Futures Leaders would like to thank all those who contributed to the Gifts for Youth Program in any way. Listen to the full interview with Scott tonight during the Ada Future Leaders Night of Lights from 6-8pm on 106.5 KRJB. Listeners are encouraged to get out and enjoy their community Christmas Lights and call in to share their favorite Christmas memories, stories, and blessings.
