Farmington Brownies donate to Toys for Tots
GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The 2010 Toys for Tots campaign wrapped up on Sunday, December 19 at KARE 11. As always, the Twin Cities community showed their generous spirit by donating toys, time and cash to the program.
This year's program saw an increase in need and a slow start to donations, followed by a debilitating snow storm. All of that could've made for a rough year for the program and ultimately for thousands of families in need. However, the community stepped up during the final week and donations arrived at a steady pace.
Thank you to all of the individuals, families, organizations and businesses who donated to Toys for Tots 2010. Here is a snapshot of this year's program:
- 17 days
- 50 Marines
- 1,370 volunteers
- 300,000 toys
- $250,000 in cash donations
All of this adds up to many happy holiday smiles for families around the area, and one fantastic and generous community.
On behalf of everyone at KARE 11, Thank You for making this program such a success.
