The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program operates exclusively on the gracious outpouring from local people and organizations. "And there's some in other surrounding communities, but in Midland there is not one", said Kent Aloia, coordinator of Bay County's Toys for Tots. "This Christmas season we've got hundreds of families who've already signed up to receive gifts from us", said Capt. Brian Goodwill, with the Salvation Army in Midland.

You can always drop off toys or donations at any time to the Toys for Tots headquarters at Beckley Auto Mall.
