WLOX Editorial: Help the Marines spread Christmas joy

The joy of Christmas can be seen in the eyes of children. Their anticipation and delight in toys they hope to receive as Christmas gifts. But for many that hope and anticipation could go unrealized except for the efforts of the U.S. Marines Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.

This is a big program coordinated with local agencies for children in need. It is a year round effort, but now it's crunch time. You have just a few more days to donate so that the Marines can pick up all the toys and distribute them in time for Christmas.

The goal of the Toys for Tots program is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsive, productive, patriotic citizens. Such a worthy cause, we invite you donate by December 12th, where ever you see a Toys for Tots donation box.

Or you can drop off toys here at WLOX on DeBuys road.We will make sure they get to the Marines.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
