Deadlines approaching to sign up for Toys for Tots
Final dates have been announced for anyone hoping their children can receive gifts through the U.S. Marine Corps' annual Toys for Tots donation program in the Lehigh Valley.
Families or individuals who want to make sure their kids have a brighter Christmas must sign up at a local Salvation Army office.
"Unfortunately, if a family does not get signed up we will not be able to help them," said Marine Gunnery Sgt. Edward Mertz, coordinator of the local program.
Merrtz said applicants for toys must provide a photo ID, proof of income, number of children in the family and their birth certificates and rent or lease receipts.
