CHICAGO (CBS) — A toy drive is under way for children whose mothers are locked up.
Holly Krig, director of organizing for Moms United Against Violence and Incarceration, said the group regularly organizes trips for the kids to see their moms, and this is the second year they’re collecting toys.
Last year, they received more than 1,500 toys from their online wish list and in-person drop-offs.
Krig said this year they have the same goal to collect at least 1,500 toys.
“We’re about halfway through our goal, but we still have hundreds to raise,” she said.
