Marines Give Toys To Over 300 Local Children


Members of The Marine Corps League Detachment 1385 distributed toys to more than 300 children in both Montgomery and parts of Macoupin County this year as part of their annual Toys For Tots campaign, which provides Christmas presents for families in need.

As the pandemic continues to impact normal operations, families were invited to pick up their gifts in drive-thru fashion at Hillsboro United Methodist Church at their designated time slot to allow for minimal contact. Volunteers were stationed at the church all week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to ensure each family received a little bit of holiday magic. Organizer Chris Gutierrez gives special thanks to all the businesses that allowed drop-off boxes, as well as community members who made donations.
