CAMPBELL, Ohio (WYTV) – Kids in Campbell got treated to a holiday lunch Sunday. And a chance to meet Santa Claus, at that.

Mayor Nick Phillips and his wife worked with Campbell Community Events to organize the Lunch With Santa.

Everyone who went got a hot meal — cooked and donated by volunteers — and all the kids got a gift from Santa.

Mayor Phillips said Lunch With Santa was such a hit last year, they needed to expand this time around.

“This year we more than doubled the amount of individuals here,” he said. “Between parents and students, we have more than 400 people.”

Mayor Phillips said reaching out to kids in Campbell is very important to him.
