LA MARQUE, TX - For the 32nd straight year, Gallery Furniture is in the business of brightening up a family's holiday season, donating furniture items to a family in need.

In La Marque, a big truck backed into the driveway of Theresa Garrett on Thursday, ready to deliver mattresses, beds, sofas and a dining room set.  Garrett is raising six of her grandchildren, and she was nominated by one of her closest friends, Charlotte Dupree.

"Raising six grandchildren, it's been hard on me," Garrett said. "My heart is just fluttering. This is just so good. I was wanting beds for the kids and my wish came true."

Garrett says she hopes the giveaway helps the kids see the good in others and how to respect one another.
