LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Fifteen years ago, the Jamieson family didn't need anything for Christmas and decided to give back. They started off by helping one family, and now they're helping hundreds.

The Jamieson family then founded The Spirit of Christmas. Each year they fundraise for the annual event.

On December 3, they were able to raise $30,000. On Tuesday, that money went to 180 families in need to shop at Walmart. They bought food, clothes, and toys.

Mrs. Jamieson works with several different agencies throughout Lee County to make sure families who really need it are able to put presents under the Christmas tree.
