Toy 'N' Joy Workshop helps families in need

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Salvation Army Kroc Center was turned into a "toy and joy workshop" Saturday to help bring holiday cheer to kids in need.

Around 400 families were invited to choose from donated gifts and food items.

Each family was paired with a personal shopper to help them pick out the perfect toys for their kids.

"We had families tell us yesterday that they told their children Christmas was not happening this year because they couldn't afford it. So it makes me happy to know that all of these families, when their children wake up on Christmas morning, will actually have a Christmas," said Janet Higley-Reade, Volunteer Manger.

The workshop will also be giving out gifts to those in need on Monday morning.
