There's plenty of philanthropy out there at Christmas time, but I've always had a soft spot for those who labor each year to line up a Christmas for children in protective custody of the state Division of Child and Family Services.
The Joe Johnson Foundation has stepped up this year. It's providing support for food, games and a $100 shopping spree for 50 kids tonight at a local Walmart.
Merry Christmas to the NBA star by way of Little Rock Central and the University of Arkansas.
