Benton Harbor Meijer hosts Toys for Tots shopping event
BANTON HARBOR, Mich. -- They save lives every day and now they're saving Christmas for Michiana kids.
Employees with Medic One Ambulance in Benton Harbor have been raising money all year for Toys for Tots.
Monday, they invited ABC 57 to come along for their annual "Shop 'til we Drop" event at the Meijer in Stevensville as they bought toys for this year's drive.
"We just decided that as a company that we wanted to try and give back to the community, and the employees just decided that Toys for Tots would be a fun event to do for the kids and basically what we do everything for," said Kristin McKay, Dispatcher Medic One Ambulance.
The Medic One crew raised just under $3,000 for Monday's shopping spree.
