The Toys for Tots annual drive is underway and there are several locations close by to drop your toys off. Bring new, unwrapped toys to the drop-off locations.
Every year for the past 28 years, the Mass. State Police has worked with the Marines to collect toys for needy children by using State Police Barracks as drop off locations and assisting with toy drives throughout the state.
The age group that is most needed is age 0-2 and 11-14 years-old.
Here's a look at the drop-off locations:
