Christmas Cheer Donations Way Down

By  | 

Many charities say donations this Christmas season are way down.

Christmas Cheer in Jacksonville says the program is a whopping 15,000 toys behind from last year. the program has been collecting toys for less fortunate families for 36 years.

Program coordinators say all of the toy recalls are contributing to the problem this year. Volunteers do go through all toys to make sure they are safe and haven't been recalled.

Last year Christmas Cheer gave away 22,000 toys.
