"We are super excited here in Plymouth especially in Webster Elementary," Brooke Busse said, the Principal of Webster Elementary. "All of the kids in Plymouth Indiana were chosen for the Pacer Baskitballidays. 2,000 toys were delivered to Plymouth and the police department was in charge of distributing them."
Over two thousand toys were given out to elementary students.
The Plymouth Police Department was chosen to distribute the toys to youth organizations in the local area.
