Share holiday magic

Many of us remember fondly what it felt like to be a child around the holiday season; the anticipation and the sense of wonder at the bright lights, the love of family and, of course, the presents.

As Christmas approaches, we can help give that wonder to children who likely face a holiday season that is less bright, less happy because of hardships outside of their control.

Each year, TEAM Toys 4 Kids distributes new toys to more than 1,0000 needy children in the Lower Naugatuck Valley community. The success of the program relies on volunteer support and community involvement. There is still time to donate and support the program, which begins distribution Dec. 17. This year, the greatest need is for kids 10 to 12 years old.
