GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - An Eastern Carolina resident’s Toys for Tots donation is giving back even bigger than expected.

One donor brought a box full of vintage Barbie Dolls to the WITN studio, and WITN auctioned the dolls on eBay to raise money for the Toys for Tots drive.

The auction ended Nov. 19 and raised $332.29. The money will be used to purchase new toys to ensure children in Eastern Carolina have presents under the tree this holiday season.

The boxes included a Barbie & Ken Star Trek gift set, Barbies from each branch of the U.S. military, as well as nurse and doctor Barbies.

Vintage Barbies Auctioned for Toys for Tots:
Star Trek Barbie and Ken Giftset 1996

WITN is still this year’s designated toy drop-off for Toys for Tots. If you would like to donate, bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Greenville Studio on Arlington Boulevard.
