12-23-04- Christmas is just a little more than a day away and thanks to your generosity, every needy child with a wish list will have a toy to open on Christmas morning. The Toys for Tots campaign wrapped up today, with more than 25,000 donated toys.
Thursday, toys were coming into the Toys for Tots districution center by the truckload, filling the shelves and spilling onto the floor. Volunteers say they are overwhelmed by the outpouring of generosity. They'll begin loading the toys on Santa's sleigh and delivering them to good girls and boys beginning Friday.
The drive started after Thanksgiving and started slow at the drop off sites, but volunteers say the toys started pouring in just a couple of weeks ago. By Wednesday's deadline, there were enough toys to fill every wish list.
