OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — An Oklahoma City man named Michael Todd has been collecting gently-used toys for a year, and he is now giving them away to families in need ahead of Christmas.

On Sunday, KOKH met with Todd, who dressed the part and jokingly called himself "Santa from the Hood."

He says this is his yearly project, and most everything at 1839 NE 6th St. is free.

"We got a lot of kids on the Eastside that's not well off and stuff. So, anything I can get, you know what I am saying, that's what I like doing," says Todd.

Families in need can go by if they need a present for their child for Christmas.
