Marines charge ahead for toys

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  South Georgia Marines say generous south Georgians responded when they announced this year's Toys for Tots drive was in real trouble.

Now they're confident they will meet their toy goal.  The Albany Rotary Club made a one thousand dollar donation to Toys for Tots and the Marines say many more people have also come to Santa's aid. 

"The community has really stepped up to our calls and pleas from last week. And they've done a fantastic job by answering the call," 1st Sgt. James Watson.

The Marines Toys for Tots program will continue to accept gifts through December 15th.

They say if donations keep coming in as they are now, they'll be able to provide toys to all the children in need in Albany.
