Guam - Speaking of donations Santa came in the form of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce that presented $20,000 worth of toys for the Salvation Army's Toy Drive. Chinese chamber vice president Benson Au-Yeung says this is the third year they've donated, saying, "This year we're very lucky even though everybody I know is having a hard time with the economy we outdid last year and we donated $20,000 worth of toys."

The Veterans of Guam Motorcycle Club also made a $1,000 toy donation, which they brought in a motorcade from NCTAMS. Incoming veterans of Guam Motorcycle Club President Albert Park said, "It means a lot to a lot of kids that never really get anything who can't afford to get anything so this is a good thing for the needy."

The toys are set to be distributed on December 21 and 22nd.
