STERLING, Va. (AP) - A mystery Santa Claus has delivered about
500 toys to a northern Virginia church.
Pastor Wayne Snead arrived Sunday at Galilee United Methodist in
Sterling and found piles of presents, everything from Barbies and
Elmos to electronic drum sets and Easy-Bake Ovens.
By Monday afternoon, more than half the toys had been given to
organizations that will distribute them to the needy.
It's the fifth time since 1998 that toys have been left at the church, but the donor's identity remains a mystery.
Pastor Snead says he imagines the benefactor waking up Christmas
morning and feeling rewarded by the joy he or she has brought to so
