NBC 2 | WAWV Toys for Tots Drive

NBC 2 and WAWV hosted a Toys for Tots drive Friday at the Indiana Theater. You can still donate toys or money at several locations around the Wabash Valley.

The Marine Corps' Toys for Tots effort is underway in the Wabash Valley and to help the cause NBC 2 sponsored a Toys for Tots drive Friday at the Indiana Theater.

The Marines have been collecting toys for children in need for more than 60 years. Indiana Theater was a drop off site all day Friday.

The Marines say they're able to serve so many families each year because of the community's generosity:

"Last year we did over 3,000 families which was phenomenal. The biggest thing is new, unwrapped toys--unopened as well. We take monetary donations [and] we go out and buy the toys ourselves," says Gunnery Sgt. Richard DeBoy.

It's not too late to help the cause. You can still drop off toys at places like Toys R Us, Big Lots, Menards and Walgreens.

They'll be collecting Saturday at Terre Haute's east-side Walmart from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
