Alisha Dimmitt and her mother, Colleen Dimmitt, join other volunteers gathered to help wrap Christmas gifts for local children and families at the Cultural Center in West Valley City on Tuesday. This year, the Giving Tree program will provide gifts for 170 children from 50 low-income West Valley families. Each child started with a list of needed items and holiday wishes. Santa’s helpers from the West Valley Police Department, local businesses and the community worked to fill those lists.
