HUNTINGTON, Indiana (WANE) – Pacers Sports and Entertainment, the Fort Wayne Mad Ants and Jakks Pacific Toys have joined forces for the third year in a row to donate more than $ 20,000 in children’s toys served at Pathfinder Kids Kampus in Huntington .
From NFL cruiser tricycles and Morf Board scooter skateboards to Sofia the First and Aladdin giveaways, 500 new toys were given away in total.
“We are incredibly grateful to these organizations, especially in this unprecedented year of COVID-19 which has been so difficult for everyone,” said Danielle Tips, President and CEO of Pathfinder Services. “We have more families in difficulty than ever, so without this donation some of our families would not have Christmas presents for their children. “
Along with the toys donated by the Crazy Ants, each family served at Kids Kampus received two gifts for each of their children, according to the press release. Many were even able to take home gifts for other children in their families.
“The Crazy Ants appreciate the work Kids Kampus does in our community and we’re so grateful that we can give back to organizations like Pathfinder Services as a thank you for serving the community,” says Allison Link, Account Manager at The Crazy Ants . “We were so excited to partner with them for the third year in a row, and even more excited for these kids! “
