REDMOND, Wash. — School bus drivers here collected 884 toys for children in need.

The Lake Washington School District’s Bus Driver’s Association held their inaugural “Stuff the Bus” event on Dec. 2, according to a news release from the district. The association partnered with Hopelink, a social services center, to stock the center's holiday toy and gift room.

The drivers parked a school bus in the Redmond Fred Meyer parking lot, and dressed in festive outfits, including one Santa Claus costume, as community members dropped off toys. All of the collected items were then dropped off to the center via school bus on Dec. 3, according to The Redmond Reporter.

The bus drivers plan to make this an annual event with more dates and locations, according to the district.
