Despite a christmas grinch that stole gifts for needy children, Toys for Tots says it was able to bring Christmas to kids who needed it most.Skip Young, Organizer of the Greater Bangor Area Toys for Tots says they were able to give toys to about seven thousand children.The fate of Christmas was uncertain after one of the group’s volunteers, Jim Nickerson, admitted to stealing thousands of dollars worth of toys from the group.After the crime, the public came together to support Toys for Tots to help them spread Christmas cheer.”They were behind us 100 percent, the donations were still coming in and we had nothing to worry about and the little hurdle, we just left it alone,” Young said when we caught up with him at the Hannaford supermarket in Brewer.The District Attorney’s Office is still investigating the incident.
