MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The 20th annual Toy Truck drive benefiting Porter-Leath is underway with its first stop at Poplar Avenue and Perkins Ext.

Mary Braddock, Communication Director at Porter-Leath, joined Andrew Douglas at the Action News 5 digital desk to talk about how you can help.

People can stop by to drop off a new toy or monetary donation to Santa’s helpers, so that over 2,500 preschool children have a meaningful holiday gift this year.
