Park Shark turns driveway into Toys for Tots donation site

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) -- If you drive down Morris Avenue in Green Bay on a Packers home game day, you'll see a shark, in flip flops, waving his fin directing people to park.

“I'm excited, I'm really hoping we get to that 1,000. I would love a whole lot more,” said Aaron Fulcer A.K.A “The Park Shark.”

He set a goal to get 1,000 donated toys for the Toys for Tots campaign after the Packers decided not to have a collection at the game this year.

“[People have] driven by and we had it going on all night last night [Saturday] and we've probably had a couple dozen people drop by and drop off toys,” said Fulcer.

“We love the Toys for Tots events. It's close to our hearts. We all have kids, we love to help the community, so we just wanted to participate; help him, support him and he's kickin' butt with it, it's pretty cool,” said Brianne Bergman of Green Bay.

Bergman says whenever she has friends in town, they come tailgate with the “Park Shark” before the game, and on Sunday, they were also able to give something back.

“We are all fortunate and blessed and we live very rich and blessed lives; but we all know there are people who are less fortunate than us. So, we want to just keep giving back and showing our kids how to give back and that's important for our future generations,” said Bergman.

It's also a tradition that's close to the “Park Shark's” heart.

“We're a very large military family; father served 28 years in the Air Force, a lot of my regulars are military, veterans or active duty, and we support the military here. The Marines happen to be right in the area and we figured Toys for Tots is the best way to go,” said Fulcer.

The Park Shark ended up with 539 toys, but next year’s goal is set for 2,000 toy donations.
