A little girl's letter to Santa pays off for a local school. Katie Bingham wrote and asked for school supplies for her fifth grade class.
Her letter was a secret, not even her parents knew about what it said. Just Katie, Santa and the elves at the Mills River Post Office knew what she asked for.
Katie was disappointed that she never heard back from Santa, but one of his elves showed up at her school in Henderson County with a box full of supplies.
Katie reminds folks that every teacher may need a little gift from Santa.
