Denver area toy giveaway short 30,000 gifts

DENVER — A shortage of toy donations may force a Denver area group of volunteers to cancel some of its events for disadvantaged children.

Officials say some requests from Toys for Tots can’t be filled because of a lack of donations and a shortage of distribution staff.

U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sgt. Pete Leyva, who is the coordinator of the program which serves seven counties, says more than 30,000 toys are needed.

According to the Denver Post, one program needs 2,500 gifts by Saturday at Park Hill in Denver and that many toys are not available.
