Did you know our annual 'Share Your Christmas' drive-by food drive also benefits the Marines' annual "Toys for Tots" drive?
This week the Marines will begin collecting toys for children in need in our community. They'll be given to families who can't afford to by gifts for the holidays.
Two kick off events will be held this week - one on Thursday and the other on Friday.
They're both from 8 am to 5 pm at the Toys R' Us at 5000 Smithridge Drive and the Babies R' Us at 4869 Kietzke Lane.

Last year the drive helped more than 8,000 Washoe County children get toys for Christmas.
Our 20th annual Share Your Christmas food drive will be December 14th this year. We'll bring you more information on all the drop-off locations once it gets closer.
