TYLER, Texas (KETK) – 80 Acre Market is joining forces with the Women’s Center of East Texas’s Stock the Sleigh Program, which provides gifts to families that have experienced domestic violence, sexual assault or sex trafficking.

“The program will serve over 90 children and is active in the community through Dec. 4. East Texas locals can adopt a child and shop their wish list, donate funds to The Women’s Center of East Texas or shop WCET’s Amazon wish list.
