RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A 13-year-old boy from Dinwiddie who has collected toys for children in need for several years helped deliver more than 3,000 toys to VCU Children's Hospital on Friday.

"Little Saint Nick" -- Nick Booth -- garnered attention earlier this week when his mother told NBC12 that the one gift he wanted did not arrive as planned.

That sparked additional interest in his toy drive and support from many UPS drivers in Central Virginia, who assured Nick and his mother Sheri Booth that his gift that he wants -- a PlayStation 4 -- would arrive by the end of the week.

"Believe it or not, we are still getting toys in," Sheri Booth posted on Facebook on Friday night. "We got an additional 188 today bringing our total to 3570."

This year, Nick's toy drive supported children at VCU Children's Hospital.
