NEW HARTFORD, NY - It's that time of year again.

Christmas music can be heard on local radio stations, holiday decorations are going up, and Central New Yorkers are starting to stuff the bus.

Seneca Wine and Liquor in New Hartford was the first stop for generous Mohawk Valley residents to drop off new unwrapped toys, and help stuff the bus.

Over the past 10 years, Newschannel 2 and Roser Communications have teamed up to collect over 100 thousand toys so local children can have a happy holiday.

Wktv's Kristen Copeland says with the coronavirus affecting so many people this year, the need to stuff the bus is so much greater.

"We collect thousands of toys every year, but knowing that we're going to need thousands more, it's sad, but it's also a happy feeling to know that the Mohawk Valley will step up."

Kiss FM’s Listen it’s Liz says there’s plenty of hand sanitizer at each dropoff site so you don’t need to worry.

"If you want to come down, and you don't feel super comfortable, throw your toys in your trunk. We'll come in, just point to your trunk and we'll take them right on out for you. No contact necessary. We're trying to make this as safe and easy as possible this year."
