It's hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. And for the Augusta Marines, that means Toys for Tots collections, have begun.
The WJBF Studio at
Television Park fills up with toys every year.
And we want that to happen again this year. When you donate a toy, big or small, to Toys
for Tots, you're helping bring a smile to the faces of so many children in our
area. These are children who come from
families that can't afford to buy them anything during the holiday season. Last year- more than 35-thousand toys were
collected, which helped more than 12-thousand families across the CSRA.
"The U.S. Marines have provided millions of toys for the less fortunate children, and i ask that you provide a toy. A toy sends the message on Christmas that the magic of Christmas has not forgotten them at all."
"I have witnessed numerous families that, due to the financial strains, due to the economy at this time of the year, they didn't have support. And having a marine show up during the month of December and providing a toy, providing some type of support to that family it's a phenomenal family. just to see a warm smile on that child's face."
The goal this year is to collect more than 50,000 toys for children across the area. You can help the Augusta Marines do just that. WJBF is one of many donation spots around the area. To find a location near you – click here.
