Stolen Toys for Tots gifts in Yonkers replenished by real-life SantasPosted: Updated:
Just days after a thief stole toys out of a box for needy children, it turns out the Grinch didn't steal Christmas after all.
Hundreds of new and unwrapped toys were delivered at Westy's Self Storage in Elmsford Thursday, thanks, in part, to one man who saw News 12’s story about a real-life Grinch stealing Toys for Tots boxes in Yonkers.
Brendan Loftus loaded his van with gifts from Queens Thursday morning after seeing that story about the thief that stole those gifts.
"These kids will have a Christmas," said Loftus.
Loftus, along with members of Local 1 Union of Elevator Constructors, became real-life Santas overnight, donating the toys in one day.
The Department of Social Services in Westchester picked up the toys and will deliver them in time for Christmas.
