The TODAY show on NBC has kicked off their 16th Annual Holiday Toy and Gift Drive for needy families in the United States. Did you know that nearly one in five children are living below the poverty level in the United States? The gifts that are donated will be distributed to children’s whose parents would otherwise not be able to provide a special gift for the Holidays. Recipients are more than 200 non-profit family organizations including homeless shelters, children’s group homes, foster family services and more.
