NORCROSS, Ga. -

The Toys for Tots campaign is in full swing! FOX 5 and the U.S. Marines want you to help us make sure a child in need has a Merry Christmas! Just bring a new, unwrapped gift to an area Publix location and look for the Toys for Tots box!

The 8-year-old age group is in particular need this holiday season.

Last year, Toys for Tots collected over 750,000 gifts. Sgt. Major Steve Teague of the USMC says the need is greater this year, citing the weak economy and the lack of jobs.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is at the Toys for Tots warehouse in Norcross to see how the donations are shaping up for the holiday season!

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
