An ambulance was set up at Walmart and, for seven hours, donations were taken for children, including toys, clothing and needed items.

By 5 p.m., the drive had amassed a large haul, which will then be distributed to families.

Those who missed the drive, but still want to donate are asked to contact Backpack Buddies through their Facebook page.
