(WHAM-TV) -- 13WHAM kicked off its 2019 Pirate Toy Fund Toy Drive on Monday with a goal of 20,000 toys to help local children in need. Throughout the week we’ll be traveling to different drop-off locations, tracking the progress of donations and highlighting the community efforts.
You can donate toys at the Eastview Mall carousel, local Wegmans stores, Strong Museum of Play, Xceed Financial Credit Union, Bill Gray’s Iceplex, Greece Town Hall and 13WHAM from now until Friday to help contribute to the goal.
Since 1994 Gary The Happy Pirate and the Pirate Toy Fund have collected thousands of toys to help create smiles for local children in need. Toys go to hospitals, children organizations, the Red Cross, and other community partners of the Pirate Toy Fund to help make children happier in some of the toughest times,
The Pirate Toy Fund collects toys throughout the year to help children. You can learn more at PirateToyFund.org.
