Albany business gives Christmas cheer

December 23, 2005

Albany -- The Spirit of Christmas is seen in South Albany, as gifts are prepared for children in need.

The owners of the J.L.Litman Memorial Funeral Service will sponsor their Seventh annual Christmas Fruit Stocking Giveaway Saturday.

Family and friends prepared one thousand stockings Friday afternoon, filled with fruit, candy, and gifts.

Saturday at noon the stockings will be given to children, to say Merry Christmas. Litman Funeral Services owner John Litman said "I can't think of a better way to give back to the community. It's just a wonderful thing that we do, and get a lot of satisfaction, fulfillment, and joy by doing this."

The fruit stocking giveaway will start at noon Saturday on the lawn in front of the Litman Funeral Service on East Clark Avenue.
