Toys for Tots drive in final daysDecember 8th, 2012 at 3:06 pm by Bill Diven under Community Affairs
KRQE viewers stepped up to help make Christmas a little brighter for needy families this year by supporting the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program.
On Thursday viewers gave more than $8,500 during a 3 1/2-hour phone bank.
The Marines expect to help about 10,000 children this Christmas but still need donations of cash and new, unwrapped toys.
The final push will be a drop-off event Monday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the American Home Furnishings parking lot on the northwest corner of Carlisle and Menaul boulevards in northeast Albuquerque.
KRQE is a sponsor of the program.
