LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The 12-hour Toys for Tots challenge wrapped up Friday night at the Holiday in the City ice skating rink. 

Designed to help WAVE country kids have a Merry Christmas, the toy drive gathered new, unwrapped toys for needy kids. Donations of money were also accepted. 

"Toys for tots is very simple. Bring us a toy or make a contribution or money, we take money, and use that to buy toys," veteran and Toys for Tots volunteer John Bishop said.
