It was all thanks to a toy giveaway in Hagerstown. More than a 1,000 Washington County parents who couldn't afford gifts had a chance to pick out free toys for their kids this holiday season.
"Nothing feels better, than to be able to help people who are in need. The way the economy is, with high unemployment, there are a lot of new families coming this year who are in need of toys," says Karen Lyle of the Salvation Army.
The toy donations were contributed by more than a 1,000 families and businesses in Washington County.
