(WALB) - A burglary out of Valdosta could leave hundreds of children without toys this Christmas.
Toys for Tots Coordinator Lisa Fisk Hayden said the owner of the building, located off of Bemiss Road, was contacted by nearby employees of Piggly Wiggly that the door to the warehouse seemed to be busted out.
There were roughly 30 boxes full of toys inside that were stored from last year's drive and were going to be used for this coming holiday season.
"It's hurt me very badly, there's no words to describe how heartbroken I am," said Hayden.
This specific warehouse caters to children and families in Lowndes, Berrien and Echols counties.
Simply Southern Gifts located on Ashley Street placed a Toy's for Tots box inside its store for donations.
The Valdosta Toys for Tots is asking the community for help, whether it be monetary or toy donations, so they can have something to give children this Christmas.
Anyone with any information about this crime or the people responsible is asked to call the Valdosta Crime Tip Line at (229) 293-3091.
