Toys for Tots desperately needs donations

Posted: Updated:

The Huntsville Toys for Tots organization is in desperate need of donations.

Saturday was supposed to be the last day for distribution, but volunteers had to tell families in need to come back later. They are about 600 bags of toys short, so the group has extended the campaign until Monday in hopes of more donations coming in. 

"We understand the economy has been a little rough this year," said Staff Sgt. Michael Williams of Toys for Tots. "The government shut down really played a huge impact on Huntsville, but as Marines, as a community, the one thing we are not going to do is fail."

The group's warehouse, located on South Memorial Parkway in the Goody's Plaza, will be open until 8 p.m. Saturday and all day Sunday.

If you'd like to help, you can drop off toys or monetary donations at that location.
