What started as a grassroots organization in Lee County has grown into the BigHouse Foundation, helping foster children all around the state throughout the year. BigHouse Foundation offers resources to families with foster children. Those include a monogrammed towel and swimsuit drive, "Nights Out" for foster parents and a free clothes bank for the foster families. This year, the organization is also holding Crafty Christmas to bring local artisans and the public together while raising money for the nonprofit. Micah Melnick joined News 3 Midday to talk about the idea behind Crafty Christmas. It will be held Saturday, November 23. Head to the old Johnson's Galleries building in downtown Opelika from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $5, which goes towards BigHouse Foundation.
