Local Family Spreads Some Christmas Cheer
DAYTON -- A local family is spreading some Christmas cheer after a Grinch stole presents from a 5-year-old boy.
After this story aired Monday night on ABC 22 and FOX 45, we got a call from a woman who wanted to help that family.
"I caught the story last night and I just thought it was really sad," said Christina Castro.
With just eight days until Christmas, Castro decided to spread some Christmas cheer of her own.
"I thought this kid's not going to have a Christmas so if there's something that I can do and make a small donation then that's what needs to be done," she said.
We told you about Corey Johnson, and his 5-year-old son Jayden.
Someone broke into their Dayton home, and stole $400 worth of video games and a Nintendo game system.
"It's one thing to go out and buy Christmas presents and then to have all that taken away," said Castro.
With thoughts of a Grinch stealing Christmas from a 5-year-old weighing heavy on her heart, she took matters into her own hands.
"You tell them I say Merry Christmas" said Castro. "I will, thank you so much," said the reporter, "Sure."
So we drove the envelope from Christina's home near Kettering, and hopped out of the truck with it in hand to give to Corey and his son.
"Wanted to give that to you," said the reporter, "Here Jayden, you can open it, it's for your Christmas," said Corey Johnson.
Inside a check, and a message.
"'I hope this helps bring your Christmas back, love Christie,' That's so sweet though, it really is," said Johnson.
"I would just like to tell her thank you," said Corey. "I mean that's all, from the bottom of my heart, you were able to bring Christmas back to him."
Heartfelt appreciation from everyone in the family, especially from young Jayden.
"Thank you," said Jayden.
