Denim & Diamonds at 9 Elm St. in Oneonta is hosting "Giving Back to Our Community" on Thursday, December 12, starting at 5:00 p.m. This holiday event was the brainchild of Denim & Diamonds owner Joyce Knuth, who wanted to do something fun for local children.

With the help of other local businesses who donated new toys for this event, Santa and his elves will be giving out one free toy to each child through the age of 12 (while supplies last) at this event. There will also be free cookies and hot chocolate for attendees. Parents, feel free to take photos of your kids with Santa, as they get their free gift.
