Church donates 14k toys to families in need
El Paso, TX (KTSM) — Thousands of children, who may not have had a present to open this Christmas, will now have something to smile about.
Abundant Living Faith Center had it's annual "Christmas is for Kids" toy giveaway at the County Coliseum. The event, now in its 15th year, is donating 14,000 toys to 7,000 children. The church raised $1,000 in two days to buy enough toys for the giveaway.
"There is such a need. There's so many kids that don't get anything for Christmas and I think it's right for people that have to help those that don't have. So that's the goal of our church," said Pastor Charles Nieman.
Throughout the week the church gave out 4,000 toys.
