After an urgent call for help last week, local nonprofit Johnson County Christmas Bureau says it will be able to host its annual holiday shop this December after all.

Driving the news: The local nonprofit announced this week that it had found a commercial space to hold this year’s holiday shop for low-income Johnson Countians, following a months-long search.

Key quote: “I believe that our community steps up for people in need in their time of need, and we have truly seen that this year,” Bureau executive director Nina Kimbrough said. “It absolutely shows the spirit of the holiday season, how people open up their hearts to make sure that our neighbors in need have joy and the things that they need during this time.”
