For most children, Christmas morning is filled with laughter and the joy and excitement of opening a brightly-wrapped Christmas present. Unfortunately, not every child has that holiday experience. You can change that for a child this year.

Lite 98.7 is partnering with the Rome Rescue Mission to help make Christmas a little merrier for children in need.

Everyday we'll feature 4 special children who want nothing more than a simple gift to open on Christmas. If you're interested in granting a particular child's Christmas wish, call 315-721-0987 or email
