Toys for Tots, an annual program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, aims each year to provide toys and other holiday gifts for children from homes that are low-income or otherwise in need.
The toys were collected locally from individual donors at bins placed throughout the city. The campaign was also boosted by several events over the past month that were aimed at increasing toy donations.
Along with the Marine Corps Reserve, the Lompoc Toys for Tots program was coordinated for the seventh-straight year by the Santa Barbara County Community Action Commission.
