Rocklin-based Sleep Train Mattress Centers said its 2012 Toy Drive for Foster Kids collected more than 40,000 toys for foster children.
That was up from about 34,000 the previous year.
Throughout last year, Sleep Train's various programs to help foster kids collected more than 200,000 items and raised more than $630,000 for other activities. Sleep Train is beginning 2013 with its Pajama Drive for Foster Kids, which runs Monday through March 3. Donations of all sizes, infant to adult, can be donated at any Sleep Train store.
