300 more families picked up their toys at the Toys for Tots "North Pole"

Bowling Green, Ky. (WBKO) --- Toys For Tots donations have been pouring in.

Bags of toys were lined up row by row in the Toys For Tots North Pole for 300 more families this morning.

The children's faces and excitement said it all.

"Because you feel loved, just love when you come with your family. You get games, you get toys," said 11-year-old Mustafa.

Many children even took a picture with the Marine Corps Santa Claus and got to pick out a stuffed animal to take home.

One mother of six says she is so grateful because she does everything she can just to get by during the holidays.

"It's wonderful because sometimes, you know, you just don't have just enough or you have kids with birthdays right next to Christmas and every kid, I don't care who you are, wants something on their birthday or Christmas or something just to make them light up," said Lauren Brown, who was picking up gifts for her children.

"I feel thankful for [Toys for Tots] because they are helping us out with the toys and giving other people brand new toys, and then I can have my Christmas holiday and it will be happy," said 9-year-old Enllelis.

Just like every year, the BG Mustang Club made their large toy donation, continuing their support for less fortunate children.

Next Saturday December 12th will be the last weekend for toy pickup.

Pick up will be at 9:00 am at Butler County Area Tech Center and 2:45 pm at Kentucky Downs.
