CASTLE HILL - Santa Claus came a bit early for children at the Leake and Watts Early Learning Center in Castle Hill.

The Ortiz family has been raising money since August in order to purchase gifts for more than 120 children at the school, who otherwise may not have received a gift this Christmas.

The 20-member family has been giving gifts to the school for four years, despite their own personal financial struggles.
