The pile of items is growing higher in each of this year's three locations for the Gift of Toys toy drive for the Angel Tree program, Power Dodge, Murray GM and Your Toy Store and More.
As the toys roll in, so do the generous folks donating, along with their stories. Among them is Randy Marchand, who has been touched personally by the program.
"In 1986...we lost our house in a fire, on December the 18th. Every year since that fire, we've been giving toys to the toy drive because they came forward and helped replace our children's gifts that we lost in the fire. We're just paying it back over the years."
He adds that the thought of the smiles he may have been able to put on another kid's face is a good one.
"Makes me feel real good," he chuckles, "Because I know, after our fire there wasn't too many smiles. Then when we got gifts of toys it brought some smiles back to our kids. Hopefully, it brings some smiles to kids around here."
The toy drive continues from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM all day Tuesday the 11th, and all day Wednesday the 12th, at Power Dodge, Murray GM and Your Toy Store and More.
