“That’s the kind of people we have in this town,” said city administrator Caitlin Martin. “I’m going shopping today.”

The children requested pillows for their beds and bedsheets, and one wanted a teddy bear.

“The oldest child, a teen, said he only wanted for his siblings to have presents under the tree,” Martin said.
