Wilmington PRIDE collects thousands of toys for kids affected by HIV

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A local toy drive is allowing hundreds of children affected by HIV or AIDS to have a better Christmas.

For the third year in a row, members of Wilmington PRIDE have collected toys, and this year, the items will be given to Duke Partners and Caring.

More than 1,000 toys were donated.

Thursday, the toys were packed up and sent to Duke Partners and Caring, where they'll be given out to children who have HIV or have parents with the disease. 

Counselors say that since medical bills and medicine can be expensive, the toys help families out financially.
