Now that fall is here at the Jersey Shore, it's not too early to think about the holiday season, especially if those thoughts turn to helping people in our community.

A local young man Chris Nolze certainly knows what it's like to battle health issues, but his focus has always been helping others and that's why he created Chris's Fight For A Cure Foundation.

And now Chris wants you to help him help the Children's Specialized Hospital of Toms River as the annual Holiday Gift Collection gets underway. Chris is hoping you can donate things like nail clippers, gift cards, bed sheets, flavored Chap Stick, scotch tape, glue sticks and more for the kids.

You can learn more about Chris's story and the details on the Chris's Fight For A Cure Holiday Gift Collection by checking out the video below, or by visiting Chris's Fight For A Cure Facebook page.
