The city of Douglas is collecting toys for children affected by Hurricane Sandy.

DOUGLAS, Mich. (WZZM) -- City leaders are collecting toys for children along the hurricane-ravaged East Coast.

The toy drive is meant to help the victims of superstorm Sandy prepare for Christmas.

So far, the city has collected about 200 hundred toys, ranging from stuffed animals and Barbie dolls to books.

"There are a lot of children who have been displaced by the storm and their families are not going to be ready for Christmas," says Jeannie Neve, Douglas city clerk and organizer of the toy drive. "They're probably not even going to have housing, so we wanted to do something to help the kids."

Organizers will drive the toys to a church in New Jersey at the end of the month, where they'll be distributed.
