Capital Area Dream Center on Sixth Street in uptown Harrisburg hosted a toy giveaway. More than 1,500 hundred toys were given out today. This is the fourth year of the event and organizers say volunteers and community partners helped make this year’s gathering a big success.

“Our mission is two-fold. Number one, to reach people for Jesus and number two, to meet practical needs and this one way we can go about that meeting those practical needs.” Richie Lewis of the Capital Area Dream Center said.

More than 300 children attended the toy giveaway.
