Farmington Brownies donate to Toys for Tots
ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The 2010 Toys for Tots campaign has started with a heartwarming gift from a group of Farmington Brownies.
Members of Troop 25013 joined reporter Jeff Olsen live in St. Paul at the IBEW Holiday Lights in the Park, one of this year's drop off locations.
Each member of the Brownie group from Farmington brought along a teddy bear they created specifically for Toys for Tots.
"We sold Girl Scout cookies," said one troop member about how they got money for the project.
The girls used the funds for a November trip to the Bear-a-Bear store, where they got to select, help stuff and dress a bear.
There is more information about Toys for Tots on the Holiday Traditions page of kare11.com.
