On Monday, LIVE 5 NEWS held our annual Toy Blitz as part of our Debi’s Kids and the Salvation Army Angel Tree campaign. We set out with a goal that was, to say the least, ambitious: 5,000 toys collected between four locations throughout the day.
We didn’t meet the goal of 5,000, but by the end of the day, we had collected nearly 4,000 toys. In this ecnomy, when so many people are watching every dollar, collecting that many was an accomplishment in itself. Those toys will be distributed to local children who might otherwise not receive anything under the tree this year.
It’s definitely not too late to help. You can still bring new and unwrapped toys to Live 5 Studios or to the Salvation Army on Highway 61 through the weekend.
If you’ve already donated toys, thank you so much for being part of our campaign. It will mean so much to the needy families in the Lowcountry!
