Thanks to our loyal WDEL listeners, five local shelters will get to go on a shopping spree to feed the needy and the homeless this holiday season.

The Reverend Tom Laymon who runs the Sunday Breakfast Mission, says your donations will go a long way.

"We can do so much by your contribution. The multiplication factor is amazing; it's massive. Hundreds, thousands of lives being turned around and gotten off the streets, despite the recession," Laymon says.
