Albany --  Marines and other community leaders need your help to make this a Merry Christmas for South Georgia children in need.

"Bikes or Bust" week will soon come to an end at the Albany Mall.

The Marine Corps Logistics Base, the Salvation Army and Rock 103 need your help to collect brand new bikes for Toys for Tots.

The bicycle drive will end tomorrow night. The goal is to get at least 1000 bikes.

Someone has been on hand to collect the bikes 24 hours a day for the entire week.

"We just want to put bikes together. You can get them unassembled. You can make a cash donation. However you want to help, those bikes stay here in Southwest Georgia," said Rock 103's Yoda.

Hundreds of bikes have already been collected, but many more are needed.

Regions bank also joined in this years drive. Anytime a new account was opened, Regions donated money to this cause.
