Since 1947, the U.S. Marine Corps has fulfilled a special mission to ensure that needy children have presents for Christmas by holding Toys for Tots drives.
For over a decade, WTOC has been a proud supporter of the Marine Corp's local Toys for Tots drive. Now through December 15th, you can put new unwrapped toys under the Christmas tree in the WTOC reception area during regular business hours.
Many stores throughout the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry have also been accepting donations.
