December 25, 2013 - Santa Claus can't do it all by himself, so every year he enlists the help of Oxford-Addison Youth Assistance (OAYA) to make Christmas a little merrier for a special group of kids.

This year was no exception as OAYA hosted a wonderful Christmas party Friday night at Immanuel Congregational United Church of Christ in Oxford. The kids were given pizza, cookies, toys, warm hats and scarves. They even got to visit with Santa Claus himself, who stopped by to spread some holiday cheer.
