BOISE, Idaho — Every year, Idaho News 6, Albertsons, Blue Cross and your local Toyota dealers partner with the U.S. Marines to help make the holidays brighter for thousands of Treasure Valley children.

The Marines have a new way of getting your attention this holiday season. As part of this year's toy drive, they will be picking up and dropping off thousands of toys in their newly wrapped Toys for Tots mobile. Thanks in part to Peterson Toyota, you'll see the Marines coming from a mile away.

"It's great, we definitely appreciate the local Toyota dealers for all your donations," said Gavin Glon, Staff Sergeant of the U.S. Marines. "It definitely helps out the kids in the Treasure Valley."

It's all coordinated by the Marines, but we need your help. Just bring new, unwrapped toys to donate and leave them in the bins in front of your favorite neighborhood Albertsons.
