GR8 Holiday Give continues through December 16

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — The News 8 Gr8 Holiday Give took center stage on the New Haven Green today.

Good Morning Connecticut’s Teresa Dufour and our newest team member anchor Laura Hutchinson joined with some U.S. Marines to collect toys for their Toys for Tots program. Santa even took a break from the North Pole and rode up on a motorcycle to help in the toy collection.

News 8 and our Partner Access Health CT are collecting for Toys for Tots until December 16 to help those most in need this holiday.

The News 8 Gr8 Holiday Give is a friendly competition to see if the News Team or Weather Team can collect the most toys. There’s a box for each team at collection sites. Donations should be new, unwrapped toys for infants through 16-year-olds. The Marines say gifts for 12 to 16-years-old are the most needed.
