Hundreds of toys came from far away Tuesday to bring smiles to some South Mississippi kids.
A group of firefighters from New York City brought eight 18-wheelers full of goodies to Ocean Springs. Along with hundreds and thousands of dollars in food and supplies, the firefighters also brought toys.
They say they know what it's like to be in need, and wanted to do all they can to bring joy to South Mississippians in our time of need.
"After 9/11, we saw the outpouring of support from all over the country, all over the world. And we operated alongside a lot of people who helped us in our time of need. It's our time to pay back a little bit," retired NYC firefighter Tom O'Connor said.
