Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Locked-out union workers will have an even brighter holiday season after a food and toy drive.

Two bus-loads of food, toys and toiletries are being delivered up and down the red river valley today. It's been more than 16 months since the lockout began, so this is the second Christmas some of those families have been struggling.

Today workers and volunteers unloaded hundreds of toys and food items they have been collecting since November.

Deb Kostrzewski, locked out worker, says, "We've tried to fulfill some wish lists for kids and the kids actually don't even know they're getting these toys so it'll be nice to give them to them and see their faces."

Workers can pick up whatever they need from their local union office this week.
