Over 500 toys were collected Wednesday for needy children in the Johnston County area.
The NC Farm Bureau Office in Smithfield organized the annual event which was co-sponsored this year by United Community Bank, Capitol Auto of Smithfield, and WTSB Radio.
All the toys were dropped off Wednesday at the Farm Bureau Office in Smithfield. Those who donated were also treated to a free hot dog lunch with Santa.
The toys will be given away on Saturday, Dec. 8th from 11am until 1pm at the Micro Free Will Baptist Church Hinnant Outreach Center at 102 E. Main Street in Micro. Santa will also make a special appearance during the Saturday giveaway.
