COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - House of Mercy gave away nearly 600 toys to homeless youth in Columbus on Saturday.
Last year, the group was only able to give away 200 toys, and House of Mercy is happy with the growth of their holiday giving.
They are trying to make sure area children affected by homelessness aren't left out this Christmas. The organization collected and gave out more than 600 toys to some very excited children.
"It really touches my heart that people came out to change the community and change the world later," a House of Mercy volunteer said.
