BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The spirit of Christmas came alive Tuesday at Jeff Davis Elementary School in Biloxi.

The spirit started at nearby Keesler Air Force Base. The wing staff put up an Angel Tree at the base the past few weeks. Employees bought gifts for needy families. On Tuesday, those gifts were picked up and delivered to the Biloxi elementary school

As many as 15 families benefited from this heartwarming generosity. That was quite evident by the smiles on the faces of parents and children who received the gifts. Presents ranged from bicycles, to games and toys, clothes, and electronic devices.

This is the fifth year Keesler partnered with Jeff Davis Elementary on this very special Christmas program.
