The Pittsburgh Project
People are stepping up to help after a mix-up involving Toys for Tots that meant hundreds of kids might not get toys for Christmas. But what lead to the problem is still a bit of a mystery.
A local businessman with a lot of toys reached out to KDKA-TV and Get Marty after local charities were having trouble getting their Toys For Tots deliveries.
At the Marines’ Toys for Tots distribution center in the Strip District on Friday, hundreds showed up to get toys for their children and grandchildren.
Toys for Tots is known for making the holidays special for kids by making sure they get a toy.
