ONSLOW COUNTY, N.C. -- Thousands of children in need in Onslow County will get to open toys on Christmas morning.
 
It’s all thanks to the annual Onslow Christmas Cheer program.
 
On Thursday, 500 families shopped for their children with more than 200 volunteers to help wade through the aisle of toys.
 
Organizers say their goal is to help each child feel the love of a caring family and caring community during the holiday season
 
This year, Onslow Christmas Cheer will assist 4,900 people in need across Onslow County. Of that number, 2,700 are children.
 
With the help of community donations, the program will distribute 20,000 toys, valued at $180,000.

Focusing on

The Onslow Community Outreach organization has raised $360,000 for their new building. Within two to three years, the group hopes that number will be $2.3 million. Before being introduced to the new capital campaign at the 26th annual Onslow Community Outreach meeting, attendees were told of the 2015 achievements of the program. The outreach program was founded in 1990, and Executive Director Theo McClammy said there are still some volunteers who remember the day it opened. No one showed up.
