Families stopped by to drop off new and used toys that will be going to children in need.

Organizers said that they have already received hundreds of donations as well as a lot of money contributions.

“For us to be able to help and bring that joy to these kids is amazing for them to be able to have a Christmas and have these gifts where they may not have had them before and that is one reason we do what we do,” said Trooper Andrew Hacke, Pennsylvania State Police.

All of the toys collected will be stored at the main headquarters in the Millcreek Mall at the old Office Max.
