A local American Legion group will give children Christmas gifts during its annual event Saturday.

Post 273 will provide gifts to children 3 to 10 years old from 2 to 5 p.m. at its headquarters, 1335 N. Hydraulic. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

More than 350 children received gifts during the event last year, the post said. The focus on gifts his year will be on educational items and less on toys and bicycles.
