Universal Shows Its Holiday Spirit5 Dec, 2001 By: Hive News
Universal Studios Home Video is planning its own miracle just off 34th Street.
Next Wednesday the Grinch will personally deliver thousands of toys, just like he did in Whoville, to representatives of Toys for Tots.
After receiving the toys at New York City's Herald Square (corner of Broadway and 6th Ave between 34th and 35th streets., the charity will distribute them to children and families affected by the recent terrorist events, some beneficiaries of the Twin Towers Orphan Fund.
Taking a lesson in caring and sharing from its own product, Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the division Video matched the quantity of toys collected nationwide and joined the U.S. Marine Corp Reserves Toys for Tots gang in hosting ``The Grinch's Spirit of the Holidays / Toys for Tots'' national charity toy drive.
A Grinch-themed 18-wheeler has visited 17 cities on a special event tour across the country to collect toys ever since a gala Nov. 20 kickoff event at the new Hollywood-Highland complex in Hollywood.
