Local organization donating holiday gifts for kids in need
BERLIN, Md. – One local organization is making sure every kid in their program has a present under the tree for the holidays.
Worcester County Youth and Family Counseling Services provides a lot of programs for kids and families from mental health counseling to aiding families who are struggling financially.
We’re told the holidays can be a tough time for families who are just trying to make ends meet, so the organization is taking matters into their own hands with the help of Toys for Tots.
The 80 kids or so that they serve will be getting a toy this Christmas thanks to toys donated through Toys for tots and other community members.
“For some of them, they would not receive a gift if it wasn’t for this effort so giving them the opportunity to enjoy Christmas with that gift is really special,” explains Steven Taylor, the organization’s executive director.
Taylor says they are already starting to contact the families for deliveries and pick ups to make sure every kid gets their present under the tree by Christmas day.
