Sartell man Drew Bienusa, who is self employed as a video game player, held an event on his live streams to raise money for Toys for Tots encouraging his subscribers to donate money for this cause. Drew said he expected to raise around $1,000 but it turned into close to $3,300.
Christmas is still about three months away, but at least one local organization is already ramping up for the holiday. The St. Cloud Marines Toys for Tots program is looking for financial donations now.
Runner's laces are tied tight and bells are strapped to their shoes as they gear up to support Toys for Tots. The 18th annual Jingle Bell 5K Run will kick off at 9:00 a.m. Saturday at St. Cloud Orthopedics in Sartell.
