"I like to see the smile on their faces," Reba said.

Her father agreed.

"I love to give to people that need something," David said, adding he believes his children will continue the tradition.

"My kids said that when I couldn't do it anymore than they would take over," he said. "It's going to be an ongoing thing for the family."

Robin Marston, Sharing and Caring’s president, expressed gratitude for the Fitzpatricks’ effort.

"Our clients really appreciate it," Marston said. "For a lot of them, this is how they get their Christmas trees every year." 

Christmas trees are usually left outside the organization’s building for pick-up.
