Kids Shop for Kids to Help Toys for Tots

Posted: Updated:

Kids in the Great Falls community learned the value of giving this holiday season as they shopped for gifts to be donated to the Toys for Tots drive. Toys for Tots is still nowhere near their toy goal this year of 32,000 toys for children during the holiday. So they turned to the experts for help.

"It teaches them a valuable lesson in life and if you want an expert on toys who do you go to? You go to kids, they know what kids want. so you know I can take older people but they don't quite know what the kids want. So this way I bring in the experts, they shop and I know that the kids that are receiving are going to be happy on Christmas morning," says Marylou Brewster.

These community kids came out to shop for a day at several local stores each with around a 100 toy quota each and a goal to help make others children's holiday brighter.

"We have I think about 14 of them running around the store. they all have a list at what their mission is. I tried to pair their list up with their age group because then their experts and it kind of makes them understand that there are children out there who need help," explains Brewster.

The kids involved all say they have learned an important lesson about helping those in need.

"I feel happy, because we are helping other people Shop don't have enough money to buy toys,"says Tessa Lehman.

"Shopping for kids is pretty fun, because they don't get a Christmas so we're trying to get a Christmas for them," says Payton Brewster.

"I've learned that its very for kids to get stuff at Christmas because without that it would just be very disappointed and sad," explains Abbi Smith.
