TYLER — Monday, marks one week that Jammin Jimmy Olson, radio host at 95.3/ 102.3 The Breeze, has braved the elements for a good cause. It's the third year Olson has lived inside a storage unit box at the Broadway Square Mall parking lot in Tyler until he raised a Ton of Toys for less fortunate children in East Texas.
Monday, he met his goal of two thousand pounds of toys with 5,571 lbs of toys and exceeded his bicycle goal of 102 bikes with 135 bicycles.
He tells KETK this year, there were triple the amount of needy families, and he's pleased with how much East Texans donated.
5,571 pounds surpases what was raised last year, that total was 4,300 lbs of toys.
