Kids Give To Toy Drive

By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - In the true spirit of giving, some East Texans kids decide to give toys to needy children.

Around 30 children, from pre-school to 5th grade, from First Christian Church donated hundreds of toys to the Tyler Fireman's Toy Drive. The kids made the decision to donate the toys that would have been given to them, and began collecting donations in early December.

The toys will be taken to the Salvation Army where they will be distributed to needy children the week of Christmas.
