Non-profit organization spreads holiday cheer to Bronx residents

Each year, a non-profit organization in the South Bronx turns its office into Santa's workshop to spread some holiday cheer.

Emergency Rights, located on 149th Street, helps residents with domestic violence and immigration issues, and gives out thousands of presents to Bronx youngsters during the holiday season.

This is the ninth year of the toy giveaway at the center.

Workers at Emergency Rights say they get as much joy from the giveaway as the kids do.
