Third grader runs cocoa stand to benefit Toys for Tots

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The season of giving is here, and one young boy in Ohio truly embodies that giving spirit.

Tyler Gallo is an 8-year-old third grader who has a passion for giving.

A few years ago, he told his mother, Amber, that he wanted to give back to less fortunate kids.

With his mom’s help, he created “Tyler’s Cocoa & Cookie Stand.”

Now in the fourth year, Tyler runs the stand to benefit Toys for Tots.

“You come and you bring a toy in, and you can get hot cocoa or you can bring a money donation,” he explained. “We use all the money we get…to go buy more toys for Toys for Tots.”

The event took place Sunday only, but you can still donate to help Tyler’s effort. If interested, you can email Amber at or visit the Tyler’s Cocoa and Cookie Stand Facebook page.
