WNCN at North Hills for Stock the Sled toy drive

Posted:

By Dane Huffman

WNCN and the Capital City Clauses are looking to Stock the Sled with toys for the Salvation Army all day today at North Hills in Raleigh, and you can help.

Throughout the day, you can drop off toys for the Salvation Army at the commons area at North Hills, which is in front of the movie theaters.

The toy drive is being sponsored by Park & Market of North Hills, and toys already are being accepted at the Park & Market office, which is near on the side of the North Hills complex near the Harris Teeter. You can drop toys off at Park & Market through Dec. 5.

Also, Omega Sports and Learning Express are donating products for the effort.

WNCN anchor Pam Saulsby and Chief Meteorologist Wes Hohenstein were at North Hills beginning at 3 p.m., taking in toys and greeting people. Hohenstein will do live weather reports at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Phil Sanchez and Bill Reh of WNCN Today were live from North Hills Friday morning.

The Capital City Clauses have been raising toys for children for 19 years. This marks the first year NBC-17 has partnered with the effort and the first time the event has been held at North Hills.

The Capital City Clauses raised 5,000 toys last year and hope to raise 5,500 this year.

You can share photos, and follow the event, on WNCN.com or on Twitter at #stockthesled. And if you can't make it to North Hills today, the Capital City Clauses will have toy drive locations at more than 85 businesses around the area. You can find those locations here.

WNCN also sponsored the popular International Festival this year at the Raleigh Convention Center in October and Band Together's highly successful B-52s concert at Koka Booth Ampitheatre in Cary in May.
