Donations doubled in 'Toys for Tots' campaign at PBS

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Cincinnati Bengals and U.S. Marine Corps announced Wednesday the ‘Toys for Tots' collection results.

Last Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bengals fans donated 5,470 new toys and $48,888 in cash donations. The output doubled what was collected in previous years.

“With more than 54,000 children in the eight-county Tri-state region being supported during this holiday season by Toys for Tots, the Bengals toy collection has been our largest,” U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Coordinator James Key said. “We are very grateful for all the contributions.”
