As part of this year'stoys for tots, the U.S. Marines 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 a mile away.

Every year, Six On Your Side, the Marines, and Albertsons partner to help make the holidays brighter for thousands of treasure valley children.

Mark your calendars, our annual toys for tots toy drive kicks off November 23rd. You can drop off toys at any Albertsons around the valley.

"It's going to be a great advertisement piece for us. We're going to be using it to collect toys all over the area. We'll be using it for locations, show up there take us all over the place," says Chandler Bird, U.S Marine Corps. "Its basically going to our main mode of travel, and it's going to make a huge difference and help us out a lot."
