WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Parents and grandparents were grateful for donated gifts from viewers in the area as they picked up some items from the Salvation Army Wednesday.

Various businesses throughout the area have been collecting unwrapped toys and bikes to help brighten the holidays for a child in need.

Parents say their children wouldn't have much under the tree without this help.

"I wasn't thinking of getting him a bike. The most I would get him is probably one toy, and I'm going to come out of here with a bike and several toys for him," said parent Monica Carrasco.

Whether you donated to the Salvation Army Toy Drive, Weller's Wheels or any other charity, WECT would like to thank you for your contribution. Without you, several families would have nothing this holiday, so this truly makes a difference.
