Maya Bakhru, 7, was able to donate more than 100 toys. Her mom says she thought about doing it all on her own after visiting a less fortunate family.

“I thought of kids not having toys that they’re bored all day just sitting around there so i wanted to donate a toy so they’re not bored,” Maya told NBC4.

Maya took her donations to Washington Township Station 92 in Dublin.
