KTTC'S Drive-By Toy Drive collects thousands of toys for Christmas Anonymous

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Santa wasn't the only one spreading the holiday cheer this weekend, KTTC's Annual Drive-By Toy Drive for Christmas Anonymous collected thousands of toys for children in need on Saturday.

Hundreds of people drove to our station here in northwest Rochester to donate new, unwrapped toys. Some of Santa's helpers-- and KTTC's very own-- were on hand to take the gifts so people didn't have to get out of their cars on the frigid, winter day.

The first 300 cars even received a gift certificate for a 6-inch sub at Subway.

All of the donations will be taken to a special location where local parents in need will be able to shop for their children in a store -like setting this Saturday.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's drive another huge success.
