Bronx Councilman Andy King and the Bronx Youth Empowerment Program hosted their annual holiday toy giveaway on Christmas Eve.

More than 100 kids packed the Eastwood Manor in Laconia for the party.

King says it's his way of helping the community during the holidays.

"My wife and I started this over seven years ago. We opened up our home in an effort to give love to our community residents who are struggling or having challenges,” King said.

"I came to see my family and friends and to have a Merry Christmas,” said one young attendee.

"I'm excited to give presents to other people,” said another.

Many of the families attending the event came from nearby shelters.
