A Toys for Tots campaign in one eastern North Carolina county is scrambling for donations after someone stole most of their toys.

Halifax County Toys for Tots officials said the theft was discovered Monday morning at their warehouse in Enfield.

WITN is reporting that officials say they are supposed to distribute the toys on Monday to 524 children, but right now it looks like they can only serve between 100 and 150 kids.

They are in desperate need of toys and will be staffing the warehouse at 104 Halifax Street through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. each day for donations.

Enfield police said they are investigating the theft.
