TEMPLE, Texas —

From 350 to 400 bikers showed up at the Temple, Texas, American Legion Post for The 26th Annual Tri-County Toy Run, KCEN reported.

This year, the group hopes to help 13,000 kids. In 2017, they helped 9,000, post commander, John Potts, told KCEN.

Every rider who takes part donates either $10 or a toy for the ride to pack a tractor-trailer with gifts that will be distributed to children through 21 nonprofits in the area, KCEN reported.
