LORAIN, Ohio-- Did Santa get the wrong address?!

A Lorain family is trying to solve a holiday mystery after they found a bundle of presents on Christmas Eve that were clearly meant for someone else.

At first Brandon Clark said, “I thought it was a bag of garbage.”

The young father discovered the large bag on his front porch and wondered why someone would dump trash near his home.

He was about to throw the bag away when he realized it was full of wrapped Christmas presents.

Brandon and his wife, Brittany, knew the gifts weren’t for their children. The hardworking couple said Santa was already set to visit their home that night.

“I looked through it and there were about 9 different kids' names,” said Brittany Clark.

They said they called their landlord and asked about the previous renter but there was no forwarding information.

They said they also tried neighbors and posted it on Facebook without success.

“Nothing came up,” said Brittany. “We just want these to go to where they belong.”

The couple is hoping FOX 8 viewers can help.

They hope someone will recognize the packages like a friend, family member or perhaps a church or charity that might have dropped them off.

The Clarks have set up an email account where people can contact them directly with information.

They’re intentionally not revealing the names on the presents, so that any possible 'grinches' won’t try anything sneaky.

They said it might be too late to save Christmas, but there’s still time to make some family’s New Year a whole lot brighter.

“You know our kids get a good Christmas every year,” said Brandon. “Whoever they are, they deserve to get a good Christmas too.”
