WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Watertown church is getting ready to give away gifts to hundreds of people in need.

New Life Christian Church's annual Christmas Giveaway is Saturday.

Anyone who's in need or is struggling will be able to pick out new and gently used toys, clothing, household decor and some big ticket items, like bicycles and TVs - all for free.

"All the items have been donated by members of our church as well as a special offering that we took up back in October and we had some funds left over to be able to buy items for this and really show our community, hey, we just want you to know you're loved. You're cared for and we want to be able to bless you this year. Whether you're struggling or in need this year, we still want you to be able to have a great Christmas," said Executive Pastor Joel Berthet.

The giveaway is Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon. The church recommends people get there early as there is usually a line.
