Toys For Tots In Crisis

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

The charity that provides toys for needy kids at Christmas time is in dire straights.

Toys for Tots says for the first time ever the toys are running out and it's not even close to Christmas.

The Marines organize Toys for Tots every year. Thursday they loaded up 5,500 toys for one charity, but they need about 20,000 more to meet the extremely high demand this year.

"Usually in the past, Wichita has pulled through for us, but this year the economy is down. Everyone is more concerned about providing for their own and there's a lot of kids out there who are going to miss out on a Christmas," said Sergeant James Watts of Toys for Tots.

You can donate toys to any Walmart, Walgreens or McDonalds locations. Toys for Tots needs toys for 10 to 14 year olds.
