You can get some Christmas shopping done, support local businesses, and raise money for local schools all at the same time on Saturday.

Shoppers in Lansing's Old Town neighborhood will be able to designate 17% of their purchases to local school and parent-teacher foundations.

More than a dozen locally owned Old Town businesses are taking part in the Shop 4 Schools event.

The campaign raised $1,300 for schools last year.
