It's time for our annual Toys for Tots drive - 'Operation Toy Wars' - with the local U.S. Marine Reserve! This year the event will be held on Thursday, November 21 at both Wal-Mart stores in Texarkana from 10 a.m to 4 p.m.The toy drive is going to be a little earlier this year so that the Marines will have plenty of time to get the toys collected and distributed in time for Christmas.

Once again, Townsquare Media radio stations Kicker 102.5, Power 95.9, Eagle 106.3, and Mix 93.3 have partnered up with both Texarkana Wal-Mart Supercenters to hold this year's toy drive at their stores. Please bring us a new unwrapped toy or monetary cash donation to Wal-Mart and help a child in need this Christmas. The Marines will be cooking out hot dogs and hamburgers for a cash donation as well.

Since 1947, Marines have fulfilled the dreams of millions of less fortunate children each Christmas, thanks to your generous donations. Remember: "Every Child Deserves a Little Christmas."

Here's a little history on how Toys For Tots got started.
