Christmas store finds way to stay open for holidays despite robbery

Posted: Updated:

A Christmas store for families in need is remaining open for the holidays, despite a robbery that left organizers scrambling to stock the shelves.

News 2 viewers helped the Christmas with Dignity program make it happen.

The local non-profit organization, Cottage Cove Urban Ministries, selects families based on need and invites them to shop in the store, paying pennies on the dollar for new toys and gifts for Christmas.

Last week, News 2 reported that several items were stolen from a vehicle used to transport the toys and gifts.

"Where we were a few days ago, it was uncertain if we were able to meet this and a lot of people watched on TV and came forward and helped," said Brent McDonald with Cottage Cove.

This year, Christmas with Dignity is helping more than 300 families with children have a merry Christmas.
