TEXAS TOWNSHIP -- People in Wayne County pitched in to make sure kids have a very Merry Christmas.

Folks have been dropping off toys in a sleigh at Baer Sport Center near Honesdale and Thursday, a motorcycle pulled the loaded sleigh to a Toys for Tots building where the items will be distributed to children in need.

Newswatch 16 did a story earlier this week about the desperate need for donations and organizers are grateful that people stepped up.

"That is the whole idea, you know? You got to give when you can give, there's a lot of people in need, if you're fortunate enough give to them," said Duane Baer, Baer Sport Center.

The round-up comes after the first ever "Fill-the-Sleigh Motorcycle Toy Run" which helped collect toys for kids in Wayne and Lackawanna counties back in October.
