WEST SALEM, Wis (WKBT) – A West Salem holiday tradition looks a little different this year, but is still helping out those who need it most.

The Henderson Motorsports team helped 19 families get Christmas gifts and food for the holidays. Nine families were also treated with a surprise trip to see Santa.

Donations from the community made it possible for the kids to receive all the gifts they wanted. Keeping traditions going is important, especially this year.

“I think the urgency this year was huge, more than the past seven years. We wanted to make sure that everything was perfect. We have every single gift, every piece of food they’re gonna have for their meals. And just make this more of a memory than COVID has,” said Dan Deicher, the announcer at the La Crosse Speedway.

This is the eighth year Henderson Motorsports has helped make this event possible.
