LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– Some families got a little extra help this holiday season to make sure that Jefferson County families have something to open this Christmas. These families took a trip through The Action Center Holiday Gift Shop on Monday.

Parents of nearly 4,000 children were invited to the center’s annual event to pick out toys. At the shop in Lakewood, they looked through rows and rows of toys for children.
