Toys For Tots Kicks Off

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

It's hard to believe the holidays are right around the corner. Saturday began the first weekend of the Toys For Tots drive for this year.

The Rendezvous Casino and Burger Grill, along with the Western and Southern Empire Emporium, teamed up with the Marine Corps and Young Marines to once again spread a little magic this Christmas season.

"There's marines down here that aren't even from the community. They've put forth hundreds of hours, if not thousands, putting this together. Just doing the right thing. You see kids that are in need, and just like this community when somebody is in need they usually come out and they do what they can to help out," said marine volunteer, Lt. Vincent Melkus.

There will be various Toys For Tots drop-off locations throughout the holiday season, and you can catch updates on those spots here at kulr8.com.
