JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Toys For Tots needs help to make sure every child in Central Mississippi wakes up to a gift Christmas morning.  The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them to needy children in the community.

This year the program will help 2,000 families.  On Saturday 3,000 toys had been collected, but approximately 60,000 toys were still needed.  Donations can be dropped off at 400 locations across the Jackson metro area including all WalMarts, Walgreens, Sonics, Taco Bells and Wing Stop.  To volunteer or if you have questions about donating call 601-238-2425.
