Laurens Commission of Public Works board of commissioners unanimously decided in their monthly meeting on Monday night to match last years $3000 donation to the Christmas in the City program.

The Laurens Police Department will be hosting a golf tournament on October 30 at the Lakeside Country Club to also help raise funds for Christmas in the City. They were able to raise $11,000 last year. The program typically works with getting gifts for 150-200 kids in the community, from birth to age 17.
