WARMINSTER, Pa. (WTXF) - In one Bucks County town, Santa's helper is hard at work, making sure there are presents under the tree. The workshop, all thanks to the community who stepped up in a big way with their holiday spirit.
A rec center turned pop-up store in Warminster, Bucks County, filled with gifts to place under the tree with the perfect price tag - it's all free.
"Oh my God, they gonna love this," Michelle Reid-Holden said.
Reid-Holden is from South Philadelphia. She drove one hour to make sure her 6 granddaughters have presents to tear open Christmas morning.
"I had 5.5 storage units. It took a dump truck to empty my house," explained Danielle Metzler.
The woman who organized this growing pop-up shop 5 years ago, called Just Be Claus.
"Anybody that's stressing about Christmas, no money after bills, you're welcome. You're welcome to come and take what you need," Metzler explained.
Just be modest. There are hundreds of donated toys and outfits for children in need, both new and gently used.
"It keeps them out of a landfill and into the hands of a child who needs them," Metzler said.
Metzler is one of 7 children and says her late father, Richard's hard work and community service motivated her to start the holiday charity.
"We stills to this day marvel at how they made Christmas so tremendous every year," Danielle stated.
And, this year, it's Michelle's grand babies who will have that same feeling of awe and excitement on Christmas Day.
"If y'all see the smile on their faces when they…you're gonna be like, 'Wow' this is what somebody did to them," Michelle said.
Another satisfied customer, Danielle Metzler says she's feeling pretty good, too.
"To see the relief on people's faces, just knowing they've paid their bills, now they can have a Christmas. It makes me proud that I did something good for my father and my mom," Metzler explained.
