A northern Michigan man flew to Mayfield, Kentucky in a plane filled with toys.
Timothy Baise runs Homeless Angels — a street based outreach in Lansing, Michigan.
While he was at the organization’s toy drive this past weekend, he talked with the manager of the Mayfield Airport to find out what he should send to help those affected by the tornados.
Surrounded by thousands of toys, he said he couldn’t believe it when the manager told him to send just that — toys.
“There’s hundreds of houses that are just destroyed. There’s no way these families are going to be able to get anything for these children. Toys, I mean I had goosebumps, I almost couldn’t breathe, right? I started like blowing up because I’m in the middle of this,” said Baise. “He had no idea who I was or what we were doing at the time and he said toys. All I could say is ‘I’ll be there tomorrow.”
Baise said he packed his caravan plane with as many toys as he could. He estimates that around 1,000 toys were delivered.
This Friday he’s making a second trip to Kentucky, this time to Murray.
