Hometown Hero: Toys for Tots

Last year, more than 300,000 Toys for Tots were donated to children in nine North Texas counties. So far this year, 75,000 toys have been donated. The Marines thank you, but they've got a long way to go.

It's going to take a big push to get toys to kids in need for Christmas. The Marines are asking for sports jerseys and balls, makeup, toiletries and small electronics for girls and boys aged 9-12.

Donations end December 14, so please help with what you can.

If you'd like to volunteer to sort and box toys in the warehouse log on to dfwtoys4totsvc@yahoo.com.
