A York City charity will have winter apparel and children's toys to give away Saturday[eri: Dec. 8: ] to anyone in need.

Hats, scarves, boots and "coats of all sizes" will be available at the pre-Christmas giveaway hosted by Neighbors Helping Neighbors, a nonprofit that got its start four years ago after a fire displaced 61 families from their homes on Chestnut Street.

Bobby Brunner, the group's founder, spent Thanksgiving week collecting donations of every kind from a tent he pitched outside at Re-Source York, 405 Carlisle Ave. in York.

The collection effort yielded lots of toys and winter clothes, Brunner said.

"It looks like someone went to a women's department store and got all these fancy boots," he said.

The giveaway is scheduled for 11 a.m. until roughly 4 p.m. at Re-Source York.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors accepts donations year-round and schedules giveaways every few months.

Anyone interested in donating clothing, food, toys, cleaning supplies, furniture etc. before the Dec. 8 giveaway can take their donations to Outhouse Storage, 1251 Wallace St. in York.
