Local Boy Collects More than 2,000 Toys

Written by 
Brewer - Thousands of kids will be getting new toys this Christmas, many of whom will never know, that another child made it all possible.
 
Well Brayden Mott may have only turned eight last week...but his actions, reach far beyond his years.
 
Last year, Brayden collected 322 toys to donate to Toys for Tots in just two weeks...dressing up in a Santa Claus suit he bought with his own birthday money.

But this year, he had his sights set much higher- a collection goal of 2,012 toys.
 
Support and donations from family, friends, and the community didn't cease...the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce stepped up to help this miniature Saint Nick reach his goal.
 
As a kid himself...he knows just how it feels to see a new toy waiting under the Christmas tree.
 
Brayden's actions didn't go unnoticed.  A witness to his efforts wanted to pay it forward as well- suprising Brayden with his biggest dream- going for a trip around town in a limosine.
