Every year, Durham Rescue Mission holds a Christmas Eve dinner for the needy. They serve turkey and ham. And for the kids, there's a toy giveaway.
But now, just five days out, the group is 6,000 toys short of what they need in order to give all the kids some new playthings for the holiday.
"We accept new and used toys throughout the year, but at Christmas time we do like to give a new toy to the kids," said DRM CEO, Ernie Mills. "What kind of new toy? I tell the parents, any kind of toy you would buy for your kids, our kids would love it also."
