It has been all over the news: The unemployment figures, the foreclosures, the layoffs or extended business shuttering for months. People who last year were contributors, this year are recipients.
Every year the Marine "Toys For Tots" program tries to make sure that every child receives at least one toy. This year, they are falling way short on donations while the need figures keep climbing. They are already running out of the donations from the major toy manufacturers.
If you can see your way clear to buy a toy or donate a few dollars, please do so. One thing to remember, the donations for the youngest children tend to be generous while older children sometimes go lacking. Please do what you can either in person or at the Toys For Tots website.
