Posted: Updated:
NORCROSS -

Saturday was The Great Toy Drop for Toys for Tots, but if you were not able to make it out for it, there is still plenty of time and opportunities to donate.

FOX 5 Helping Hands is helping the Marines in their mission to make sure every child has a reason to smile this Christmas. With thousands of families in need this holiday, Toys for Tots is in greater need more than ever.

Several members of the FOX 5 family were at the Publix on Holcomb Bridge Road at Peachtree Industrial in Norcross on Saturday taking donations of unwrapped toys to the event to donate to a child in need.

Totals from Saturday's donations are still being totalled.
