PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — Zaxby’s of Northwest Florida, a sponsor of the WKRG News 5 Magical Christmas Toy Drive, packed up buggy after buggy today of toys for needy children, when they took WKRG News 5’s Drexel Gilbert on a magical shopping spree!
A spirited crew from the Escambia and Santa Rosa County locations dashed up and down the toy aisles of Walmart on Pensacola Boulevard, loading up shopping carts with dolls, soccer balls, stuffed animals, games, bicycles, electronics and a whole lot more!
Zaxby’s owners and employees tell News 5 that it’s important to them to help children in Northwest Florida wake up to a merry Christmas with plenty of toys under the tree. They are excited that all the toys they’ve purchased in Pensacola will stay in this area and go to children who live here.
The Salvation Army works with WKRG News 5 to make sure that each toy, whether it’s donated by a business like Zaxby’s, or by a viewer like you, will end up under the tree of just the right child!
