EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Hundreds of toy donations that filled the WPRI 12 studio lobby were picked up by Cardi’s Furniture and Mattresses Friday, capping off this year’s extremely successful Toys for Tots campaign.
This is the second time donations were picked up from the WPRI 12 studios this year, after the first batch of donations flooded the studio lobby.
A @NIROPE truck just came by our @wpri12 studios to pick up the final truckload of donations for Toys for Tots! Huge thanks to all of our viewers and employees who filled our lobby and hallways with toys! pic.twitter.com/gMmpwtHSGA— Corey Welch (@CoreyWelch) December 21, 2018
Eyewitness News received so many toy donations this year that the overflowing boxes from the second batch of donations inundated the lobby and were spilling into the studio’s hallways.
While the donation drive at WPRI 12 has come to an end, those who still want to donate can do so by bringing and unwrapped toy to any Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses location until Christmas Eve.
For a list of the remaining drop-off locations, or if you would like to request toys for your children, check the Toys for Tots website.
Eyewitness News would like to thank everyone who donated to the Toys for Tots campaign.
