Toys For Tots Begins
A simple Christmas gift can give the gift of hope to children who are less fortunate through Toys For Tots. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program collects new and unwrapped toys during November and December. They'll distribute gifts to children in need. There are 250 collection sites in eight Western North Carolina counties.
Organizer Ruth Holbert says children who come from hardships need to know people believe in them.
"I do it because I can't imagine what it would be like to wake up on Christmas morning and not have anything, I never did that in my life. I think that would be a terrible thing for a child," said Holbert.
