A mountain of Christmas presents Wednesday morning astonished youngsters from the Asociación Obras del Espíritu Santo dropped by the Corte Suprema de Justicia.

The Poder Judicial said that some 5,500 presents were available for distribution, and the youngsters present received one. The association works in low-income communities.

Magda Pereira, a supreme court magistrate, noted that five years ago the court workers collected just 125 toys and she said that she hoped that other institutions would follow the example of the Poder Judicial. Receiving the bulk of the donation on the behalf of the association was the Rev. Sergio Valverde.
