La Crosse’s Jingle Bell Brunch helps out area veterans and their families

LA CROSSE (WKBT) – The 12th annual Jingle Bell Brunch helped area families celebrate the holidays and it was all for a cause.

Proceeds from the brunch will go to help military veterans and their families.

Families got to celebrate the season with pictures with Santa and a children’s activity center.

Organizers say that this event is a great way to support the community.

“You can’t help but be here and be filled with joy,” said President Kim Lenth. “And that’s what we want. We want to give joy and fellowship and a sense of community.”

If you missed the brunch today but would like to help out, Jingle Bell Brunch organizers are taking donations online.
