The world¹s largest Christmas project is seeking volunteers all over the DFW complex to help bring the gift of Christmas to children around the world. Operations have already begun to make this year a success, but to fulfill this year¹s total wish list of reaching more than 10 million children we need you to help spread the word about the different opportunities of how Wylie residents can spring into action and make a difference.
