Rimrock Mall Gives Toys for Tots Big Boost

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Some boys and girls will be happy this Christmas, as Toys For Tots gets a big boost today from Rimrock Mall.

Marines bought dozens of presents for Toys For Tots using money donated by you, as well as gift cards from Rimrock Mall.

They went from store to store buying gifts, and the marines say it's a special feeling to know they put a smile on a child's face.

"We may not actually see some of these children when they're opening up that toy, but some of the other events we do when we actually deliver toys, we will actually get to see that kid open up that toy and see that moment of joy. That moment where it's affected their life, where they didn't anticipate a gift this Christmas, but we were able to get them one. So, it's exciting. Definitely," said Capt. Diana Salmela with the US Marine Corps.

The Marines will be taking donations until December 23rd.

You can always drop off your toys at the mall, or here at the KULR-8 studio, located at 2045 Overland Avenue.
