PATERSON - One organization is playing Santa this weekend for some very deserving families in Passaic County.

Dozens of volunteers with the Big Gift charity are bringing Christmas gifts to nine families this weekend.

Organization founder Brian Giordano said he had trouble finding charities that would allow his children to work, so he created one himself that would let children participate.

"It's really fun to help other people and do it with them and get them in the Christmas spirit," Giordano says.

Since it was founded five years ago, Big Gift has helped more than 100 families in need in the greater Paterson area.
