Toy Parade benefits Aviva Children's Services

TUCSON - Nearly 3,000 kids in CPS custody are getting toys this holiday.

Santa brought the gifts to the 31st Annual Toy Parade at Freedom Park.

The parade benefits Aviva Children's Services, a non-profit agency that provides services for children who have experienced abuse or neglect.

Motorcyclists from several different organizations came together to hold the toy drive, collecting toys for the children.

Bob Heslinga, Executive Director of Aviva Children's Services says, "we were wondering where we were going to find the funds not only to buy the toys, but also to collect the toys, so T.E.P. stepping in and doing it in the first class way has really been beneficial."

All of the toys and money raised from Sunday's event goes to Aviva.

Kids from newborn to 18 years old will receive gifts.
