Do you have more ornaments than tree?

Here's the perfect solution: Share your extras to help make the homes of flood victims festive.

Catholic Charities USA and the Diocese of Duluth are heading a Christmas Decoration Drive. Like most folks, many flood victims kept their Christmas decorations in the basement, the Duluth Diocese tells us.
