BELLPORT -

The Bellport-based Lighthouse Mission says it is in urgent need of toys for children in need as Christmas approaches.

Pastor Jim Ryan, the group's leader, says donations have been slower than normal this year.

The group hopes to collect a total of 2,500 toys. So far, they only have about 350.

Organizers say they're collecting toys for children of all ages, but there's an especially big need for gifts that would be given to teenagers.
