ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of children will have a Merry Christmas as members with the American Legion Post 30 collect dozens of toys for little ones.
Legion members have been collecting toys for children who aren't so fortunate this year. It's part of the Military's Toys for Tots program. Members used donations and their own money to buy items for kids which the Marine Corps will later distribute.
Veterans at Post 30 are putting a bigger emphasis on giving to ensure kids will have a great Christmas in a not so stellar economy this year. Post Commander Ray Humphrey say's they've collected more than 400 toys so far this year.
"It's important to us because we remember what it was like when we were kids," Humphrey said. "Alot of us came up through hard times so we realize what it's like not to have a whole lot under the tree."
If you'd like to donate toys to the program, you can bring by a packaged toy to the Post 30 location off Gillionville Road before Saturday.
American Legion members are also packing care packages to send to troops overseas who can't come home for Christmas. They'll ship boxes with snacks, cards, and more to the men and women serving in the combat zone.
Specifically they'll ship to the troops who receive the least amount of mail and communication from home. They'll be sending 20 boxes.If you'd like to help out with shipping costs you can call the American Legion Post 30 location at 229-435-5450
