Fresno Family Collects Toys For Kids At Mayfair Elementary School

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

They're Santa's little helpers, except they aren't in the North Pole; they are right here in Fresno.

Jennifer Ladd, her father, her son and their friends are collecting Christmas presents for kids at Mayfair elementary school.

"When we help people it makes our heart warm so we try to help as much as we can," said Jennifer Ladd.

Many of the students at Mayfair elementary school are either foster kids or come from low income families.

Families that school officials say don't have very much to look forward to this Christmas.

But this pack of do-gooders hopes to change that.

"It would be a great opportunity for all the kids at my school who hardly have any toys to get some for free," said Jordan Ladd.

Jordan is a third grader at Mayfair elementary.

This Christmas he is choosing to think of his classmates rather than himself.

He and his friends cooked up the charitable plan and are determined to collect as many gifts as possible.

The crew got started early Tuesday morning.

They set up camp on the corner of McKinley and First Street in southeast Fresno.

Bracing the cold until Monday; they are determined to fill boxes full of presents.

"We are going to be out here rain, shine, snow anything," said Jennifer Ladd.

But after a slow start so far, they say they could really use your help.

"If you have donations please come over and we will give you a flyer and that's pretty much all you need to know," said Jordan Ladd.

The group will be at the McKinley and First Street intersection from 10 AM to 4 PM everyday until Monday.

They are happy to take any unwrapped toy.
