Celebrating the season of giving has become a real family affair for a local woman and her niece. They’ve even enlisted the help of their community.

Kimberly Wells and her niece Addyson Briscoe have teamed up to shop for the Tri-County Toys for Girls and Boys Program for at least the last few years.

When the pandemic threw everything for a loop in 2020, Wells created a collection site at her law offices in Glens Falls.

Word was out on this aunt and niece dynamic donating duo and this year, the toys really poured in.

The program serves kids in Washington, Warren and Northern Saratoga counties.

The community’s response has been phenomenal.

Hear how many toys had been collected by the time Wells had lost count, by watching the video of Chris Onorato’s story.
