Day of 1,000 Toys

Never underestimate the power of television.

Today we’ve collected 1000 toys for families in need this holiday season through WCSC’s Debi’s Kids program in conjunction with the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree drive.

On Friday we began asking our viewers to drop off a new toy at our studio between 5am and 8pm today. First thing this morning when we went on the air, a dedicated viewer was waiting for our Sheldon Dutes to make the first donation in the moving truck in our parking lot.

By noon, the donations were building. We have been adding to the total all day and are well on track to exceed our goal.

This afternoon a mother told our Raphael James that she and her family received gifts from the Debi’s Kids program a few years ago. Now that she’s in a position to share, she and her family decided to bring by a couple of toys for families in need this Christmas.

Times are tough, but people are always willing to help their neighbors…even if they don’t know their names.

Thanks to everyone who contributed today, and throughout the campaign over the last month.

Keep watching Live5 News!
