The Michigan DNR will be hosting Stuff a Truck holiday events all over the state.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is not only looking out for wildlife this year but children in need throughout the state as well. As you are out getting your holiday shopping done, take a few extra bucks to pick up a new toy to donate to the cause.

The DNR's Stuff a Truck event started just a couple of years ago in Detroit. Conservation officers collected toys on Belle Isle to donate to the Detroit Police Department's Sergeant Santa program. This event has since grown to include donation locations all over Michigan.
