KLEW-TV & sponsors donate toys to local kids in need

LEWISTON, ID - KLEW-TV and sponsors shared their holiday spirit Thursday afternoon at St. Vincent De Paul.

KLEW-TV along with Big-R, Lewiston Premix and Happy Day Restaurants donated more than 300 toys to the Valley's Christmas Connection and All Saints Community. Organization officials encourage people to donate any new and unwrapped toys so that no child goes without a present this year.

"It's wonderful," said St. Vincent De Paul Manager Sharon Berry. "The donations and everybody that's helped. It's just a really, really great feeling."

Christmas Connection and All Saints Community with Toys for Tots has gathered more than 5,000 toys so far. However, to make sure each of the 2,300 children needing gifts this year receive a special toy, 3,000 thousand more toys are needed.
