Families donated new toys to TEAM Inc.’s Toys 4 Kids drive and received a free photo with Santa. There also was hot chocolate, cookies, games, and a holiday story time with Marcia Austin, director of the Huntington Branch Library.

Santa thanked each child for the family’s donation and told them how, thanks to their kindness, other children will have gifts to open this holiday season.
