San Jose charity 3,000 short of toy distribution goal
SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- This morning a San Jose charity will begin giving away thousands of toys to needy children for Christmas. But so many more kids' wishes will go unfulfilled, unless the public helps out.
There are 6,000 kids signed up for the toy distribution at Sacred Heart Community Service. The charity is hoping to give three toys to each of the kids and is about 3,000 toys short of that goal.
The charity is looking for donations of books and teen gifts. Sacred Heart is located on South First Street and West Alma Avenue.
This morning's event will begin at 8 a.m. and another toy distribution will take place on Monday.
