ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A local non-profit spent the morning collecting toys for local kids in need. American Legion Post 13 hosted its annual toy drive Christmas party Saturday.

At the event, they collect community donations of toys and other items for families in the metro area. There was also live music for people who stopped by to enjoy.

Each year, they normally help roughly 200 kids. Organizers said it’s just one way they can help make the holidays a little brighter for the community.
