Toys for Shriner’s among ashes in St. Louis warehouse fire

A new station is reporting that the huge warehouse fire in St. Louis destroyed toys and blankets intended for children through the Shriner’s Toy Drive.

KMOV reported that 1500 children have been invited to a Dec. 10 Christmas party, at which they would be given toys and blankets. The warehouse fire continued to burn into Wednesday evening.

As of late Wednesday evening, the Shriner’s website did not have information about toy drives because of the loss.

The Shriner’s Hospital in St. Louis provides health care to children regardless of their ability to pay.
