ROANOKE (WSLS) - Santa came early this year for one group of students. For the past 7 years, the Aladdin Temple Shriners have hosted a Christmas Party for children at Apple Ridge Farm, an organization that engages children and families through educational, cultural and outdoor experiences.
In the past students received bicycles from the Shriners. This year, families opened presents and found tablets. The donation fits with the STEM program at Apple Ridge Farm. Organizers hope the electronics help more students get involved with science, technology, engineering & math.
