ARIZONA -- This holiday season, one Arizona man is lending Santa a helping hand!

Retired Air Force veteran Sammy Eggerman builds toy planes, trains and cars. 

Over the past 10 months, he's built nearly 160 similar wooden toys in his garage.

His wood supply is free from the University of Arizona, where he works as a lab assistant in the School of Architecture.

This year, Eggerman and his wife say they plan to donate to the Toys for Tots charity.
