Brendan King plays Santa during the CBS 6 Month of Giving

RICHMOND, Va. --  The CBS 6 Month of Giving is underway.

Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

Recently, CBS 6 reporter Brendan King played Santa at Target.

He surprised a mother and paid for the Christmas gifts she bought for her children and extended family.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
