Herberger's gives gifts to Detroit Lakes Boys and Girls Club

Thanks to Herberger's in Fergus Falls, 30 kids in Detroit Lakes will have Christmas presents.

The gifts came as a result of the Give Joy Tree program where customers bought a gift at Herberger's to give to the local Boys and Girls Club.

The Detroit Lakes Boys and Girls received the gifts because they are the closest club to Fergus Falls.

Tahnee Moe, youth development director for the Detroit Lakes Boys and Girls Club, said that for some kids, these are the only presents that they will get.

"I had a home say that they wouldn't have a Christmas otherwise," Moe said. "That was really touching."

Program director Stacy Heinlein said that Herberger's came through and made sure that each child has a gift.

Jill Williamschen, manager of the Herberger's in Fergus Falls, said that employees had fun participating in the drive.

"We were excited," she said.

Williamschen said that every child who submitted their names received a present.

"We made sure everyone had a gift," she added.
