Anonymous Donor Buys Every Toy At Goodwill And Gives Them All To Children
December 12, 2017
For nearly a decade, an anonymous donor has bought every toy in the Fort Collins, Co. Goodwill so that any child who walks into the store leaves with something.
“All kids today, all day long, you get one free toy, free stuffed animal or free kids book,” Todd Wakefield, Goodwill’s Senior Director of Retail, said on the intercom.
The anonymous donor said he does not need recognition for his act of kindness, but said that this day has become an important part of his family’s Christmas tradition.
As kids crowded around plastic bins overflowing with toys, he and his wife quietly took in the scene before slipping out the front door, unnoticed.
“We’ve got some amazing people throughout our community,” Wakefield told The Coloradoan. “This is what our business is run on, people willing to give and to help their community.”
