Lauren Coley is the nine-year old daughter of Chris and Carla Coley of Cochran.  While like most children her age she likes spending time with friends, Lauren spent part of her Christmas vacation doing something for others.

Motivated by many factors, including wishing to honor her grandmother who passed away in November, Lauren donated 67 stockings filled with small gifts to residents of Bryant Health and Rehab Center.  She raised money for the stockings by doing odd jobs for neighbors and by collecting donations.
