The spirit of giving was in the air at the Topeka Rescue Mission Thursday, where families did some Christmas shopping of their own.
The adopted families were at the mission's distribution center picking out gifts to put under the tree next week. Donations are still needed. The mission requests small appliances, adult gifts, watches, wallets, hand held games, bath sets, and cash donations.
You can drop donations off at 700 north Kansas Ave. anytime.
