Local Marines busy picking up toys


MADISON (WKOW) -- They're collecting toys at Toys For Tots drop off locations around Dane County.

Saturday, a stop was made at Misty Mountain Games and Diversions in Madison.

The store put on a raffle to encourage customers to make toy donations.

"We estimate about 30,000 toys, which is below our goal (this year), but as Marines we always achieve to go higher," says Sgt. Dennis Bagley.

There were 500 drop off spots in Dane County.

The toys will be given out to needy families December 16 - 18 at the Alliant Energy Center.

WKOW will collect toys until Tuesday. Just drop them off at our studios on Madison's west side.
