Crazy sweater brunch draws good crowd

Folks enjoyed a hot plate of biscuits and gravy at a "crazy sweater" brunch today.

Every year Mission Change puts on the event to feed families in need and give out warm clothing.

They also got to take a family portrait and visit with Santa Claus.

Executive Director LaDonna Urick says it's a great way for people to get together and celebrate Christmas.

"Everybody talks about what Christmas is truly about, coming together, and sometimes people will say we wish we could get together and have fellowship. And we thought why not.. why can't we do that. The folks of Albany and Leesburg come together, and we just have a meal together" says LaDonna Urick, Executive Director of Mission Change.

The families received blankets, hats, gloves, and scarves.
