Longview families receive toys for tots packages

Posted: Updated:

Marine corps leagues all over East Texas are on a mission to make Christmas a truly joyful time for every East Texas child.

It was distribution day by the marine corps league of Longview in their annual toys for tots campaign.  The league has been taking toy donations for months to make this day possible. Families all over Gregg county now have presents to put under their trees. The league says the thought of those family's smiles is the best payoff they could ask for.

"I think that's the best part of this volunteer effort that we do is to watch the smiles on the children's and the excitement and joy and the parents feel good about it, its a feel good thing for everybody that's involved," says Longview marine corps league member Michael Connor.    

The toys for tots campaign helped nearly 3-hundred Gregg county families this Christmas.
