An 8-year old boy in Racine plans to collect 1500 toys for children in hospitals over the holidays, according to a story by WISN 12 News.

Cody Struble had three major surgeries on his skull by the time he was 5-years-old. So he has spent a lot of time at the children’s hospital.

“I want to help everyone that doesn’t get to stay home for Christmas and give them toys,” Struble told the reporter.

This is Cody’s third toy drive for hospitalized kids. He is going to get help from Racine County Sherriff Christopher Schmaling.

“We’re looking to stuff the SWAT truck. I have a very large armored vehicle that holds 12-14 men and women. We’re looking to replace those men and women with just toys,” Schmaling told WISN.

The toys are being collected at Zarate’s Auto Sales in Caledonia, and the toy drive runs through Dec. 12.
