Good Samaritans In Lexington Go Door To Door Handing Out Gifts For Kids

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) - Spending time with family is usually a hallmark of Christmas Eve, but Sunday some people in Lexington spent hours making sure the holidays were brighter for others.

Good Samaritans were acting as Santa's elves this Christmas Eve, knocking on unsuspecting doors.

“At first I didn't know who it was and I really didn't want to answer the door. But I'm glad I did. I needed it. We're having rough times right now,” said neighbor Kimberly Zywocki, who was surprised by the knock at her door. 

They were spreading cheer and warming hearts.

“Sometimes that’s the most important thing, just somebody saying how you doing, have a Merry Christmas,” said Jess Goodman, one of the Good Samaritans handing out presents.

The group collected Christmas gifts to hand out to children so  every child has presents under the tree.

 “When I was a kid, I had the same thing done to me. So it means a lot. It means a lot that these kids are touched, that's my main purpose, and all of our purpose. Just seeing those kids have a smile,” said Goodman.

For some parents the holidays can be a struggle, but this year, only tears of joy in one Lexington neighborhood.

It was all thanks to Santa's helpers bringing Christmas magic to their doorstep.

“It’s the meaning of Christmas. And I thank you guys cause I know each and every one of them here. Thank you Mary, Thank you Jessie. I love you guys, said neighbor Kimberly Zywocki.
