The Pacers in partnership with a toy company is in its fourth year of providing toys to children in need across Indiana. The Star Press reports that over 500 kids in Muncie will benefit from this year’s effort. This week the Pacers and JAKKS Pacific gave 30,000 toys to fifty non-profits throughout the state. The Muncie YMCA received over 500 of these toys to distribute to low-income families.
Muncie Y director Jon Anderson says they didn’t expect the donation and look forward to distributing them to local children.
The Pacers and JAKKS have donated 175-thousand toys in all.
