An 8-year-old boy in Kentucky wants to make sure that the annual toy drive conducted by the Ludlow Police Department is successful again this year.

According to NewsChannel5, third-grader Braxton Gillespie solicited donations by posting copies of a hand-drawn flyer.

The flyer read, "I’m helping the Ludlow Police Department. I want to fill my mom’s van with toys to help kids to have a merry Christmas. #BraxtonMission #SpreadingCheer Thanks."

Chief Scott Smith said, "Every year, a couple days before (Christmas), we always get some surprise families added to the list, and we always scramble."

Braxton's donation ensures that won’t happen this year.
