The Marine Corp League of Lufkin is wrapping up their Toys for Tots season with their 2ND Annual Toys for Tots Benefit Concert.

Marine Corp League officials set up in the Lufkin Wal-mart parking lot Friday and Saturday collecting toys.

Coordinator Brian Crews says random act of kindness have helped them recover from fewer donations this season.

Crews says a family met league members at Academy Sports and Outdoors and purchased $3,000 worth of bikes and toys.

The East Texas Corvette Club also donated $1,000 dollars worth of toys.

"The need was greater than the donation of toys and money at that particular time so we were starting to get concerned we were afraid it was the downturn in the economy but all of a sudden its picked up an just like that the people in Angelina County come on strong and take care of our needs," said Brian Crews.

Throughout the day various music acts took the stage, Saturday night the headlining performer Taylor Hurd will take the stage at 7:00 p.m.
