Families receive special christmas decor

Special Christmas decor is brightening the homes of two local families nominated by what Travis White calls “a caring community.” The owner of Specialized Pest Control and Lawn Care, White says his other franchise Christmas Decor invited the public to nominate deserving families. He says one winner was the Robin Haag family in Smithfield where the husband and father is with U.S. troops in Afghanistan. Their home, at 81 East 500 South in Smithfield, can’t be missed with its red, white and blue roof. Fortunately, the man of the house will be home for a few days during the holidays. White says the other deserving family nominated lives at 784 North 300 East in Logan. “This family, a young family, young mom and husband, they have five children under the age of eight, the mom is having some health problems and has had a really rough year,” White says. “It’s a really touching story. Anyway, we could help them and we wanted to. She, like the other mother, has her hands full and is dealing with a lot of other stuff on the side.” In fact, he says, this mother has terminal cancer. White says many local businesses have helped contribute “gift boxes” to the two families.
