Volunteers from the Galloway Township-based Marine Corps League Detachment 194 collect items for Toys for Tots at Shore Mall in Egg Harbor Township and several other drop-off locations in Atlantic County. From left are coordinators Bob Fudala, of West Atlantic City in Egg Harbor Township; Frank Vesely, of Brigantine; Charles Fields, of the Scullville section of Egg Harbor Township; and Tititia Plummer, of Northfield.
The Toys for Tots storage room is less full of toys this year compared to the last, due to drop-off locations being affected by Hurricane Sandy and the group's 53-foot trailer of toys being stolen in October. However, the organization has goals to make up for their losses. Last year, they helped about 900 families and 35 groups within Atlantic County.
Board games are among the presents available through the Toys for Tots program.
