Elves at work

    Friday, 850 teenagers dressed as Santa and elves will deliver toys to kids in need. Organized by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the 165 teams of volunteers will bring 15,000 toys to 5,000 area kids as part of the 43rd annual Operation Santa Claus.

    The toys come from collection boxes at various locations across the city.
