Local Businesses Donate Toys For Children In Need

MANKATO, Minn -

Scheel's and Capstone are teaming up with the United Way to get their donations into the hands of children in need this holiday season.

The companies delivered a dozen boxes of donations to Partners for Affordable Housing and CADA Wednesday.

Donations included over 200 literacy kits, with items like books and pencils, as well as stuffed animals.
 
"Both the literacy kits and the puppies are just a great way to let the kids in the community know that this community cares about them. I know that the businesses really like to give back and show that they care about the kids in the community," said Elizabeth Harstad with Greater Mankato United Way.
 
The donations are expected to serve over 30 families.
 
If you are interested in giving back this holiday season, contact Partners for Affordable Housing at (507) 387-2115.
