MATTHEWS, N.C. Christmas is six weeks away, and hundreds of children were working hard to make the special day extra exciting for homeless children in the community.

They spent Sunday afternoon stuffing stockings that will go to kids who would otherwise not receive anything on Christmas morning.

The event is part of the Bright Blessings 4th annual Stuff the Stockings event. All of the gifts donated to go into the stockings were given to the organization by volunteers. Those same volunteers came to Sunday s event to put the stockings together.

Sunday s efforts led to 500 stuffed stockings going to local homeless children.
