PARIS — The Christmas for Kids and Christmas for Teens programs are preparing for the holiday.

With the help of others, Connie Allen, Janis Hutchins and Sue Batchelder manage Christmas for Kids and Jean Delamater, Rose Schwanner and Carol West, plus a team of volunteers, manage Christmas for Teens. Many individuals, schools, churches, clubs and businesses are working with the programs.
