December 7, 2013 – (center) Hildred West, along with his wife and five children, perform gospel songs while selling pecans on the corner of Madison and Avalon so the family can buy Christmas gifts this year. West says the holidays and start of school are tough financial times for his family due to so many expenses. So for the last two years the West family take the month of December and the few weeks prior to the school year to raise funds with their voices. (Kyle Kurlick/Special to The Commercial Appeal)
