TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A local organization asks for the public's help to give toys to Tucson families in need.

Miracle on 31st Street has given toys to underprivileged families and kids for more than 40 years across Southern Arizona.

Founder Ramon Gonzales said the organization is struggling to reach its goal of 12,000 toys by Dec. 22; it currently has less than 600 toys.

According to the website, the organization started 43 years ago when Gonzales threw a Christmas Eve party for the neighborhood children on his street - 31st Street in South Tucson.

Volunteers can drop off toys at the following locations:

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce: 823 E. Speedway Blvd. (Speedway & Euclid)

Old Pueblo Healthcare: 981 East Grant Road #115

Little Anthony's Diner: 7010 East Broadway Blvd. (Donate a toy and receive a free Jr. Sundae, compliments of owner Tony Terry)
