Guam - It may not be Thanksgiving, but residents are already in the holiday spirit thanks to the launch of the annual Toys for Tots Collection Drive today at the Guam Chamber of Commerce's general membership meeting.

According to Marine Corps Captain Rafiel Warfield, the annual toy drive collected 3,600 toys last year which reached 1,700 children on island. "Every toy and everything that we collect, stays on the island. And we're able to directly benefit the children and the families that are in need on Guam and its really a program that focuses on the community. It's the Guam families helping the other families in need. For us, that's the benefit that surpasses all others," he explained.

The toys will be distributed through the Salvation Army and Catholic Social Services.

KUAM is proud to be teaming up with the military for the toy drive.

You can donate new, unwrapped toys for children of all ages at our KUAM Studios in Harmon on Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
