The Marines Toys For Tots campaign helps brighten the holidays for many children.
This is the 8th year in a row that the Marines and Toys R Us have teamed up for Toys For Tots.
Toys R Us is the campaign`s largest retail partner.
The toy giant has collected 3.4 milliontoys since the partnership began in 2004.
Here`s what you can do to help out-- you can donate new, unwrapped toys and baby products at any Toys R Us or Babies R Us store through Sunday, December 2nd.
Monetary donations will be accepted through Christmas Eve.
All of the toys donated at Toys R Us stores will stay within the St. Louis community...making this a truly local program.
More than 14 million kids are living in poverty in our country—that makes programs like toys for tots even more important.
NBA legend Shaquille O`Neal is returning this year to help the campaign in his role of 'Shaq-a-Claus.'
Marines will be at the Toys R Us stores in Sunset Hills, Ferguson and Fairview Heights today and tomorrow from 9am to 4pm to help collect toys for the campaign.
