The United States Marine Corps is collecting donations and toys from the community for their annual "Toys for Tots" program.
Their goal is to collect new, unwrapped toys through December, each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to to needy children in the community.
They strive to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas, and unite al members of the local community.
The Marines end their collection of toys Friday night. They will be distributing them to families and children next Monday morning, through Wednesday, at the Ordinance Maintenance Company on New Road.
