OKLAHOMA CITY – Opening presents on Christmas morning is a holiday tradition that many children look forward to each year.

For some children, there isn’t much to celebrate.

The YWCA is working to make the holidays a little brighter for victims of domestic violence with their ‘Santa Store.’

Dozens of volunteers were busy wrapping toys, clothes and other gifts.

The store allows women and children suffering from domestic violence not only a way to get presents for each other, but a way to get into the Christmas spirit.

“I’ve always felt like the best way to show people you care about them is to help them,” said Ryan Collins, a YWCA Santa Store volunteer.
