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.
