Toys for Tots to Help Thousands of Arkansas Children

Posted: Updated:

Little Rock - You know Christmas can't be far away when KSSN Radio's Bob Robbins and members of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve gather on Toy Hill to announce the annual Toys for Tots program.

Nationally, Toys for Tots has served over 200 million children in its 63 years. 

Locally, Robbins has spent more than 30 years promoting the event and broadcasting live for 48-hours straight each year during the event.

This year's three-day gathering on Toy Hill, near War Memorial Stadium, takes place December 3-5.

Robbins says Toys for Tots helps thousands of children in Arkansas.

"Everybody knows the state of the economy.  Lots of people are going to need help, so that's what we're here to do.  I can't imagine a child waking up on Christmas morning without a Christmas gift, and that's why we come", Robbins said.

If you would like to support Toys for Tots you can drop off new or gently used toys or donations starting Friday, December 3rd at 5 p.m.  There will be music, and food on Saturday and Sunday, and a huge motorcycle parade at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.
