Double the donations and gifts to this South Texas Toys for Tots

The South Texas non-profit incorporated more children this year as well as the area of Bishop as they worked to make sure all children had a gift to open during the holidays.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIIINEWS) - More than 9,000 toys were donated during the 2017 Kleberg/Kenedy/Bishop Toys for Tots according to organizers Stefanie Perryman and Rebecca Sanchez. Donations were doubled as well. The holiday fundraiser typically covered Kleberg and Kenedy counties but the group adopted the Bishop area to help as well as other locations. Sanchez said "at least 500 kids benefited" from donations. Plans are in the works for a possible Christmas in July early fundraiser to already top last year's numbers. Kiii is a pround sponsor of the Kleberg Kenedy counties Toys for Tots campaign.
