Toys given to tots

Posted: Updated:

RICHWOOD, La (KNOE 8 News) - Toys for Tots handed out bags of them in Richwood for kids to open on Christmas morning.

The toy distribution was a part of their Monroe and West Monroe outreach program.

Ricky Justice says there were a couple hundred families that applied for the program and more than a 1,000 kids benefited.

He says it is a great feeling knowing, they've given a child a good Christmas.

"It's overwhelming. Parents come up they are happy, the kids are happy and we are definitely happy doing this for the community," Justice said.  

The organization will continue their distribution on Sunday, by giving out toys in Rayville, Start and all surrounding areas of Monroe and West Monroe.
