Making sure every child gets a toy this holiday season. That's the goal of a group of students at West Virginia University.
On Thursday folks with WVU student organizations kicked off their annual Students Helping Other People and Toy Mountain Program.
The program pairs Mountaineer student volunteers with local kids who go shop for presents.
Every year that gets quite a turn out.
They're also asking folks to donate to their Toy Mountain.
Toys from the mountain are then donated to groups like Christian Help and the Salvation Army in Morgantown.
Students involved said they're just looking to spread a little joy this holiday season.
"Just being able to open something up on Christmas," Ryan Cox, with WVU Student Organizations, said. "It doesn't have to be the newest and greatest toy. It's just the simple joy of seeing mothers and fathers happy on Christmas that's what this is all about."
If you would like to help you can drop off at toy at the Mountaineers Men's Basketball game against Virginia Tech on December 8. You can also drop off donations at the Mountainlair, which is right in the heart of WVU's campus.
