LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Doors opened at 6 a.m. Thursday for WKYT's 'Pack the Lobby' event.
People can drop off new toys, coats, gloves and hygiene products. Those items go to help children in need.
The goal of 'Pack the Lobby' is to fill the news station's lobby with the items needed.
They will then be handed out to children at elementary schools in eastern Kentucky counties, as part of the Mission of Hope.
Mission of Hope is preparing to help more than 18,000 children and their families in Kentucky and Tennessee.
Chick-Fil-A will be on hand at WKYT throughout the day Thursday, handing out food to those who donate.
Donations will be accepted until 7 p.m. Thursday night.
