Plea for more toys for Fresno kids in need

A fleet of new Radio Flyer wagons were filled with toys to be given to patients at Valley Children’s Hospital in Madera. A Fresno group, Boys2MenGirls2Women, has only half the toys it needs to give to children Thursday.

The Boys2MenGirls2Women foundation is calling on Fresnans to donate toys for kids for a giveaway that is to occur Thursday.

The group does a toy giveaway with children who did not sign up in time for the Toys for Tots campaign. The Boys2MenGirls2Women event is set to happen from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, but as of midday Wednesday, the organization had toys for only half the children who had registered.

Anyone can donate a toy up to 3 p.m. at the location of the giveaway – the Downtown Fitness center at 1408 N. N St. in Fresno.

For more information, call Bethany Byrd at 559-225-9300, extension 1208, or email her at bbyrd@boys2mengirls2women.org.
