The Thames River Detachment of the Marine Corps League is starting its annual Toys for Tots drive.
Toys are collected and distributed to needy children in New London County. Last year the detachment handed out more than 2,000 toys and the members hope to exceed that number this year.
The detachment needs a space to sort and assemble the toys. Anyone with a warehouse or store available for a short period should contact Jim Reid at (860) 961-0634.
