Free Gifts for Kids Thanks to Last Minute Toy Store

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Every December, mid-state families down on their luck can get free gifts for their kids thanks to the Last Minute Toy Store. Right now the families are already lining up, even though the store doesn't open until tomorrow. Right now there are more than a dozen families braving the cold to get their first choice of gifts at the Last Minute Toy Store. Earlier today we caught up with the mom who's actually been out there 2 nights in a row, to make sure her kids have the perfect gifts under the tree. Long before the sun set on Monday 31 year old Tracey Black sat down with a blanket and a book with only one thing on her mind: to be first in line for the Last Minute Toy Store. She arrived 30 hours before she'd even be allowed inside. What keeps her going? The thought of 6 smiling faces Christmas morning.

Black says her husband lost his job 2 months ago. Black's family is just one of hundreds that will walk through the 61st Avenue United Methodist Church and pick out toys, clothes and sports equipment to take home, wrap up and open on Christmas morning.

For the last 20 years, Midstate families have been donating items to the Last Minute Toy Store. This year, volunteers expect 15,000 donations. Black is still hoping to see those smiles Christmas morning. What makes her smile is living in a city as selfless as this. The church Pastor tells us at midnight they will open the doors to let these families wait inside, but they won't be able to start shopping until tomorrow afternoon.

The Last Minute Toy Store is open through Saturday. Volunteers tell us they still need donations, especially for teens who are too old for toys, but still need gifts under the tree.
