Generous ABC 36 viewers phoned-in $2,100 in donations to the 'Toys for Tots' program during Thursday evening's newscasts.

The money will be used to buy toys for less fortunate children in central and eastern Kentucky.

The demand for toys has never been hire in the local history of the 'Toys for Tots' program, reaching 100,000 toy requests in 2012.

The greatest need for toys is for girls over the age of 6 up to 15.  There is also demand for boys toys in the 8-to-15 age range.

For more information, where to drop off a new, unwrapped toy or to make a financial donation, go to:
