Losing your home to a fire is a terrible experience at any time of the year, but around the holidays it is especially hard.

Some local folks are trying to make sure that a family that lost everything in a recent house fire has a good holiday.

The Office of Family Support got together gifts and furniture for the family, and a fire truck delivered it to the family today.

"We're just excited to give back always and when you look at the faces of the children and the parents that are receiving it lets you know you're doing something right in this season to give back so we are excited always," said Carlos Boudreaux, Minute Clerk for Family Court.
