Family donates thousands of stuffed animals to OK kids

Posted: Updated:

A Pennsylvania family drove a thousand miles to Oklahoma City to make a very special delivery.  Their van was stuffed with more than a thousand stuffed animals collected through one of their local school districts. 

Rachel and TJ Weinwrich say they felt helpless watching the news reports right after the tornadoes in May.  They decided to put those worries to action and asked people to donate items to the youngest victims of the storm.

"Me and TJ both have our special stuffed animal that we've had since we were little that just mean everything to us," said Rachel Weinwrich.  "We figure if they lost everything they also lost their special friend so we wanted to give them a new one that they could have."

Those stuffed animals will be passed out at five back-to-school events in August including one in Moore, Oklahoma.
