“The goal is to get the smile on the kid’s face and getting him or her to enjoy this feeling that they might not always be having at home,” he said. “We forget that this is a time to give and let the kids be kids.”
More than 1,000 children received toys from Santa Claus in Virginia on Sunday thanks to the generosity of the community. Event coordinator Joseph A. Malouf said the annual giveaway is meant to reach out to as many Latino families in need as possible.

Malouf, an attorney with an office in Gaithersburg, said this year’s program also was special because it included 250 children who were victims of abuse or had been displaced from their homes.
“For many kids, they are not always having the best time of their lives” he said.
“They have difficulties understanding why their parents can’t provide for them.”
County Executive Isiah Leggett (D) and the Montgomery County Police Department helped out at the event, which took place at the Bauer Drive Community Recreation Center.
