A local man has worked with the community to donate thousands of items to the Toys for Tots program today.
Mark Duncan has collected more than 5,100 toys from his friends and others in the community. That shattered last year's donation total of 1,100.
Marines involved with the program picked up the toys at his south Reno home on Wednesday afternoon.
He says he does this to help kids in need have a wonderful Christmas.
"Just to see the kids with the smile on their face, knowing that they have the gifts underneath the tree, that's all worthwhile."
Toys for Tots organizers say Mark's donation is about a quarter of what they collected from the community so far this year.
