PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – The Big Bus Toy Express may be parked until next year, but the toys keep pouring in.

Somy Ali, founder and president of the No More Tears organization, dropped off 500 brand news toys Tuesday at Local 10.

In 2007, No More Tears began its mission to rescue victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.

Ali said the organization received enough toys this year to distribute to all the children it serves and wanted to share the abundance with others.

Local 10 arranged for the Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation, which provides financial support to families with children fighting cancer, to pick up the toys.

Last year, Local 10 collected about 6,000 toys during its first Big Bus Toy Express tour. This year, Local 10 surpassed that number, collecting close to 10,000 toys.
