Man Makes Toys For Children at Christmas

SANFORD, N.C. (WTVD) — For Jim Annis, Christmas is about giving.

The 80-year-old Army veteran has helped Santa out every holiday season for the past 50 years by creating wooden toys.

Annis spends most of his days carving, sculpting and sanding blocks of wood into toys.

“When the Salvation Army gives out the food and clothes to people in this area, I give out my toys,” said Annis. “It feels like you’re sort of forgotten about at Christmas time.”

Annis donates nearly 300 toys to the Salvation Army of Sanford.

  1. Helluva good man there. With all the prep work and time painting, that’s no leisurely hobby. He puts a tremendous amount of time into that. Thought Santa was fatter and with a beard?🤔

  2. No batteries needed! Bright, cheerful toys! Good for eye-hand co-ordination of tots. Hopefully the paints he uses are safe for little children who tend to sometimes put them in their mouths. After being publicly shown on TV, he may get investigated. Sometimes it is better to do good “on the quiet.”

  3. They’ve seen the BREXIT slaughter. I think we’ll now see the MSM trying to counter the far left.

    Good luck with that.
