The annual event for Maui people in need served up tasty meals with all the fixings for more than 200 people and also provided Christmas gifts for more than 150 children.
SECOND PHOTO: Volunteer Tiana Mattos wraps a present for an 8-year-old girl Saturday. Mattos said that when parents signed in their children Saturday morning, the kids' ages and genders were taken into account in selecting appropriate gifts to give them. The gifts were hand-wrapped, and also had names handwritten on the tags. For some kids, it may be the only gift they receive this year.
