FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - In memory of a Richardson child killed by her adoptive father two years ago, a woman is collecting toys for children in a low-income Fort Worth school.

When Sherin Matthews vanished two years ago, it broke Shanna Poteet Rivera's heart. She put up a Facebook page to help find her. Two weeks later her body was found in a culvert.

Now Poteet has turned that Facebook page and its numerous followers into a toy drive on behalf of children in a Fort Worth school where she knows a teacher.

The toy drive has nearly met its goal and the children will be treated to a Christmas party where they will receive their gifts.
