ToY DRIVE FROM PAGE 1 Lundquist said that from there, it just started growing and people began to get excited. Both toys and monetary donations started rolling in from busi- nesses and individuals. "It's close to $1,000 -- probably over with toy donations," she said. She used the donations to purchase toys through local businesses and Tupperware. Then, she used any of the money she would have made through Tupperware sales and put it back toward more toys. She said she purchased dolls, footballs, baby items and "tried to hit a lot of ages." Lundquist said that with the help of her church, Park River Feder- ated Church, the school, and the Walsh County Food Pantry, she would be able to divide the collection among area families. And any of the remaining toys would be given to the Walsh County Food Pantry and the Domestic Violence and Abuse Center. "I want to say thank you to all those who were willing to support this vision of mine," Lundquist said. "Hopefully we can do this again next year."
