Pirate Toy Fund Toy Drive wraps up with thousands of toys collected

18,820 toys were collected.

Greece, N.Y. (WHAM) - The wrap event for the 13WHAM Pirate Toy Fun Toy Drive took place at the Mall at Greece Ridge Saturday.

It's an event 13WHAM has been proud to be a part of this year for the first time!

The goal to collect 20,000 toys came in just shy at 18,820 toys.

"I'm really excited because we're close and we did beat last year's goal by about 500 toys, but we still need to get to the 20,000 and we still have time because it ain't over yet," said Gary the Happy Pirate.

You can still donate new, unwrapped toys at area Wegmans until December 20th.

Collection boxes for toys remain at the malls and at The Strong National Museum of Play all year round.
