FALLBROOK (CNS) - Uniformed Marines will collect Toys for Tots Saturday at the Fallbrook Airport.
County residents can drop off new, unwrapped toys until 2 p.m. to help put smiles on the faces needy children this holiday season.
"The Toys for Tots campaign has been a tremendous success in San Diego County in all the previous years," said Bill Horn, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. "As a former combat Marine, I'm honored to work with the Marine Corps and be a part of the Toys for Tots campaign. It's a great opportunity to spread holiday cheer, not only to the children who will get now get toys, but also to everyone who donates toys," he said.
Those who attend the event will also have a chance to view U.S. Marine Corps vehicles, a vintage World War II aircraft and other private aircraft, according to a spokesman for the county.
Last year, San Diego County residents filled four 7-ton trucks, plus a pickup and a Ford Explorer with donations, the spokesman said.
