Feel the Zeel of Giving held in Zeeland

ZEELAND, Mich (WZZM) -- People could "Feel the Zeel of Giving" Friday evening in downtown Zeeland.

The event was a chance for local businesses to stand out from malls and chain stores during the holiday season.

Participants could pet live reindeer, snap a photo with Santa, and take a horse-drawn trolley ride. A few lucky kids even got to ride the trolley with Santa.

Santa asked one little girl if she's been good for her mom and dad.

"Yeah," she replied. "Even when you don't give me presents, I have a really special present: my family."

Proceeds from Feel the Zeel of Giving are going to His Harvest Stand, a Zeeland-based ministry and food pantry which assists low-income and hurting families.
