An 11-year-old Abbotsford girl helped to make Christmas brighter this year for children who are in the hospital.

Marissa McNeill used social media to gather support from family and friends.

On Christmas Eve, she then delivered two sacks of gifts to Abbotsford Regional Hospital for kids from the age of one to 18.
