COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Employees with the state Department of Commerce will be sewing and repairing stuffed toys to be donated to children in central Ohio.
The toys are left over from testing by a lab in the department's industrial compliance division. Commerce Director David Goodman says employees are donating their lunch hour to stitch up the toys.
The laboratory tests samples of stuffed toys to ensure the filler material is safe and is accurately labeled. The toys are then set aside until the holiday season. That's when state employees make the necessary repairs so the toys can be donated.
