Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Toys, not food, invaded the Great Plains Food Bank in Fargo today.
The Great Plains Food Bank teamed up with both the Toy Industry Foundation and Kids in Distressed Situations group to help package and distribute Dragon pillow pets along with various other donated toys.
The toys are being distributed to the 264 partner agencies of the Great Plains Food Bank where they will then be unpackaged and handed out to kids throughout all 50 states.
Steve Sellent, Director of the Great Plains Food Bank, says, "kids absolutely love getting toys, but I think for you know kids in low income families that don't have many, sometimes no toys you know it's a really special thing and for us it's just another way to touch lives of those children in a very positive and meaningful way."
This year is marked the tenth anniversary of the Toy Bank drive.
