12:45 p.m., Jan. 15, 2013--The Toys for Tots campaign coordinated by the Department of Public Safety gathered 11 boxes full of toys to be distributed to needy children in the community.

During November and December, Public Safety hosted a drop-off site for the program, which is run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. New, unwrapped toys were donated and then distributed as Christmas gifts to needy children.
