Disney, 6abc and Toys for Tots collect over 3,600 gifts

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — As has been the case for 75 years, our parent company is hosting the Disney Ultimate Toy Drive.

To celebrate 75 years of working with Toys for Tots, here at 6abc we have worked hard to do our part to make this holiday season extra special for local children in need.

6abc employees, together with our parent company Disney, collected a total of 3,655 toys.

We’ve loaded the Marine Toys for Tots sled with crates and joy boxes and it couldn’t have come at a more critical time.

“All of these toys are going to kids in the Philadelphia area who might not have been able to get a toy for Christmas this year,” said Staff Sergeant Abraham Escobar. “We’re trying to make sure every child gets a toy for Christmas, but we need a lot of help. We are working on collections and it makes me really happy that we have all this help from you guys.”

Walt Disney’s relationship with Toys for Tots began in the very first year the Marines launched this campaign, knowing that the holidays can be difficult for many families.

“Disney has been committed to Toys for Tots since 1947,” said Niki Hawkins, vice president of community engagement at 6abc. “It was Disney and the original animators who created the train logo for Toys for Tots that they still use today.”

There’s still time to help Toys for Tots this holiday season.

Click here to donate. The collections run until December 24th.
