(ABC 6 News) -- Recently a number of local business owners in Austin came together to help a family in need. And it all started with a young girl's touching letter to Santa.
Dear Santa, I am five-years-old and I have been good this year.
Last week, the Oak Park Mall in Austin held its Christmas in the Northwest event.
"Sweet Serendipity decided that we were going to do letters to Santa,” said MaryLynn Chandler, the bridal store’s owner. “One little girl in particular came with her mother and her little brother."
Some nice things I have done are take care of my baby brother.
"She looked at her mom with her big brown eyes and just said 'Mom, we need food,'” Chandler said. “And it chokes me up now just thinking about it. She broke my heart."
I really want a Thomas the Train book.
