Long Island charity Toys of Hope is helping provide toys and other items to 250 needy and homeless children at the Oheka Castle. Videojournalist: Howard Schnapp (Dec. 12, 2013)

The holidays can be a difficult time for families in need, but Toys of Hope is doing its part to make sure that this year is one that 250 homeless children will never forget.

On Thursday, children across Long Island were welcomed into the Oheka Castle in Huntington for a holiday event, complete with more than 40 costumed volunteers and celebrity role models. Toys of Hope provided a shopping bag full of toys, gift certificates and more to each child, who personally received their bag from Santa Claus.
