LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The governor's mansion is officially decked out for the holidays, and many people came out to help celebrate the season in grand style Monday morning.

The annual Christmas coffee at the Governor's Mansion raised money for the Salvation Army, and Peggy Whitehurst, President of Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary, said the organization has been doing this to raise money for the Angel Tree program for years.

"It's for children who would not have a good Christmas, and the Salvation Army works at that every year. Raising funds, and getting people to take children's names, and fill sacks full of little goodies for them. We're really excited about assisting them," said Whitehurst.

Christmas coffee at the Governor's Mansion was free, but donations were also accepted.

If you can't donate, they want you to know, the Salvation Army said they still need volunteers as well. Find out more going to their website at
