DELPHI, Ind. -- The family of Abigail Williams is remembering their sweet and caring girl by collecting items to fill boxes that will benefit children this Christmas - and they're asking for your help to make that happen. 

It started as a small family project, according to Abby's mother, Anna, and has turned into a much larger project that they're hoping the community will get behind.

"Abby's Angel Boxes" are rooted in healing a heartache and honoring the life of a young girl whose life was taken before she could even celebrate her 14th birthday.
