Local Church Gives Thousands Of Toys To Needy Children
Thousands of children flocked to the El Paso County Coliseum today to pick out toys from the mountain of choices on the shelves. The Abundant Living Faith Center hosted the annual giveaway called, "Christmas is for kids." Families waited for hours in a line that wrapped around the Coliseum but once the doors opened, every child from newborn to 10 years old got a coupon for 2 toys.
Members of the church purchased and donated 20,000 toys and like every year, Abundant Living Faith volunteers say it was a huge success. The church has been doing the giveaway for 15 years now and members say the number of children served increases each year.
