Tyler, Texas (KETK) — As Christmas time rolls around we often forget there are people in East Texas who may need a little help providing gifts for children to open on the morning of December 25.
Everyone loves to see the twinkle in a child's eyes as they unwrap that special G.I. Joe or Barbie doll that they have been wanting all year.
The Stephen F. Austin basketball program collected over 250 toys at their weekend basketball game to donate to Toys for Tots this year.
KETK has also partnered up with the organization to help the children of East Texas. We have set up a donation station in our lobby and all you have to do is bring a new, unwrapped toy to the station and it will be sent to Toys for Tots.
KETK is located at 4300 Richmond Road in Tyler.
We all know East Texans have the biggest hearts, so let's come together to help the children off the community have a very Merry Christmas.
