WOWK 13News would like to thank the hundreds of people who supported our annual "Drive-Thru Drop-Off" event on Friday.

The donations began early in the morning at each of the three locations, manned by members of the U.S. Marine Corps and 13News staffers.

People came by the Huntington office of WOWK 13News on 5th Avenue, they also stopped by the station headquarters on Quarrier Street in Charleston and the drop-off spot along Kanawha Boulevard at the West Virginia State Capitol complex.

New, unwrapped gifts have also been stacking up at area sponsor locations: All Med, Ponderosa of Elkview, Brickstreet Insurance, Huntington Bank and Ashley Furniture.

Tudor's Biscuit World and Gino's Pizza stopped by to bring food that fueled the workers throughout the day.

The Toys For Tots campaign aims to provide gifts for families in a 20-county region. More than 6,000 children receive toys as a result of the campaign.

Your support will help to make the holidays brighter for thousands of children across the Kanawha Valley and the Tri-State.

Thank you again from all of us here at WOWK 13News!
