Christmas comes early for some students


MILWAUKEE (WKOW) --  A woman known as "Santa Ann" has been donating school supplies to disadvantaged fourth graders at a Milwaukee school for the past eight years.

Teachers say the gifts relieve some of financial pressures, and students say they're extremely grateful. Santa Ann donates backpacks full of supplies to the students, who say they never get to thank her in person.

Santa Ann is always gone before they return to the classroom -- just like the real Chris Kringle.
