Santa's workshop has found its way to Newark's Viola Blythe Community Service Center, but these elves need help.
The annual Viola Blythe Toy Drive is under way and Viola Blythe Program Director Debbie Cavalho said she expects that the toy drive will be short by 600-700 donations because of the closure of Toys 'R' Us in Newark.
"We need toys badly," she said. "We're really hurting on toys."
Viola Blythe toy drives normally provide gifts to approximately 300 children each year, Cavalho said. She added that even giftcards help, particularly for children between the ages of 11 and 14.
