Two groups that have been collecting toys for Christmas sent them out Friday.
The Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors sent 600 to the National Guard, which will distribute them to children of military families.
And school counselors from nine counties went to the University of Kentucky to pick up toys donated by UK students and employees for more than 800 children who otherwise wouldn't have gotten any this year.
