Saturday morning, holiday cheer and giving was in full swing.

Magdalene Hope, a local nonprofit, delivered thousands of toys to families in need on Union Avenue.

More than 2,500 toys were donated by the community.

For many families moments like these mean everything.

"It means a lot to me, it's a very special moment, my kids get to get their toys," said Benicia Stephenson, who received toys for her children. "Just very blessed, very blessed to have wonderful people around."
