DOWNTOWN CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Giving is a big part of the holiday season especially for the children in need.
Saturday Maslow's Army stood on Fountain Square with the goal of helping those less fortunate.
The group has partnered with 3CDC to collect new toys for kids in shelters or group homes throughout Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
On Christmas Eve Santa will deliver the toys to kids at places like St. Aloysius, The Bethany House and the Cincinnati's Children's Home.
Co Founder of the organization Samuel Landis said, "There are a lot of children who are caught up in the system. We really wanted to get involved. This is directly part of our mission where we want to meet the basic need. Emotions are a basic need."
The goal is to collect 1,200 toys.
For every new toy given to Maslow's Army 3CDC will provide a free skate rental to someone who may not be able to afford it.
You can donate every Saturday until Christmas from noon to 4:00 p.m.
