Couple Donates Toys

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Toys for Tots still needs plenty of toys. One couple, who heard the news, brought their donations to the KULR-8 studios.

Lee and Ruth Killman were eating lunch when they heard about the decline in donations for Toys for Tots and headed out to Toys 'R' Us. They bought nearly $500 worth of gifts for local children. They bought toys for all ages from toddlers to teens.

"Christmas is a time for kids, and it's a time for giving, and it's a time for sharing love," Lee said.

"One of our granddaughter's birthdays was yesterday and we took some presents to her, and she just, the excitement in her eyes, you know, and we just want to bring that kind of joy and excitement to all the kids," Ruth said. "Hate to have anybody miss out."

If you would like to donate to Toys for Tots, you can drop off toys here at 2045 Overland Avenue until 5 PM on Friday.
