Generations FCU and Partners Collect 11,500+ Toys for Area Children
Monday, December 29, 2014 6:25 AM

Generations Federal Credit Union partnered with CBS affiliate KENS 5 and Corner Store as part of the annual Bill's Elves Toy Drive to collect toys for the more than 7,000 children who are under the care of Child Protective Services. This year the event was held from Monday, Dec. 8, through Friday, Dec. 12, and received more than 11,500 toys for the children.

"This is the third year that Generations has partnered with KENS 5 to sponsor this incredible event, and it’s been so rewarding to watch the toy drive grow larger and larger every year," said Ashley Harris, vice president of corporate communications for Generations. "This was by far the best year we’ve ever had, and that’s directly related to the San Antonio community and how we go out of our way to take care of each other."

The toys were delivered to CPS offices on Tuesday, Dec. 16, and the trucks were unloaded live during the afternoon newscasts. KENS 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Taylor served as the host of this annual event.

Generations volunteers collected toys in front of the studio during the collection week, and donations could be made online through the Generations website. Both Corner Store and Generations also accepted donations at their locations.

"With the busy schedules we all lead, it’s not easy to carve out time, so Generations and Corner Store tried to make it as easy as possible to contribute to this very worthy cause," said Harris. "By opening up our locations and by setting up the online donation process it makes it very simple for the community to step up and make a difference in the lives of these children."
