The Toy Lift has solved one major problem, but now faces a new one and is looking to the community for help.

Tom Powell, the founder of Toy Lift, says the organization has acquired a space big enough to house all of the holiday gifts it buys and receives this season.

However, the charity now says it needs help powering and heating the event.

"We found out this week that a couple of the rental companies, that for the last few years have given us those things have changed ownership and are no longer giving them, but now we have to pay them to rent them." said Powell.

The Toy Lift need three or four, 50 kilowatt generators for the December 7th collection day.
