After their oldest child died, they turned their grief into something positive. The Satterfield family in Maryville decided to host a toy drive to coincide with his birthday.

Zakiah Satterfield died in April 2016 when he was just 9 years old and in third grade.

To honor his memory, his family organized a toy drive last year and will host another one this year.

They are partnering with the Junior Service League of Maryville. All toys are donated directly to the Toys for Blount County program to benefit children in need this Christmas.

Please donate new toys. Do not wrap the toys.
