UTICA, N.Y. -- The Cornerstone Community Church is teaming up with the Oneida Square project, and Plymouth Bethesda Church to help under privileged families. It's called the Black Friday sale.

The organizations work with social agencies that identify families in need of a little help getting through the holidays.

The families are able to pay a substantially lower price to pick up gifts for their children.

“We believe that it gives the families a sense of dignity. That they're still providing for their families. They're paying a nominal charge, but they're still providing for their families, and they're able to choose the gifts that they want,” said Executive Vice President of Operations Diana DiPrimo.

Around 380 children are being helped by the sale, which is an increase from last year. Any leftover toys from Friday's event will be donated to Stuff the Bus.
