Packers Kenny Clark says thousands of dollars worth of toys for kids in need stolen
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- At least $5,000 worth of toys collected by the green and gold for kids in need in California were stolen the night before the kids were supposed to get them.
“My mom had put the toys up in the storage room at our house and someone broke into it and stealing the toys," said defensive tackle Kenny Clark.
It's the second year Clark has collected toys. They are being donated to kids in San Bernardino, California.
"You trying to do something good for the community and then someone does something crazy like that," he said.
His mom had helped him work on the toy drive all year.
"It's just messed up. It's just messed up. This is for a bunch of kids man, it's difficult, especially for my family and my mom, she works hard to do it," said Clark.
But the stolen does did not stop the team's Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee.
"The toy drive, still going to go on, lot of people lot of stuff coming in today that's a good thing," he said.
And by a lot of stuff, he's talking about thousands of dollars worth. His marketing team created a fundraising page, receiving thousands of dollars in donations from people around the country.
In terms of who took the toys, Clark says they have cameras at the home where the toys were stolen and are hopeful they will catch whoever did this.
