Sunday's (Nov. 6) bike run that kicked off the valley's Toys for Tots 2016 campaign at the Salvation Army was a complete success. We had so many bikes there! People even came in vehicles to make sure that the United States Marine Corps got toys for the kids.Every year the bikes come out and show their support to the USMC and Toys For Tots. It is so important that we help out with this. Can you imagine being a child and everyone around you gets something for Christmas except you? That is how it feels for some children.

If you missed the toy run, you can still bring by a new, unwrapped toy to Townsquare Media, 4010 Summitview Ave., and ask for Kelly West. She will make sure the Marines get the toys for the children.

Merry Christmas and Semper Fi!
