A member of the Schuylkill Carbon Marine Corps League Detachment 626 was out and about on Wednesday picking up toys for the annual Toys for Tots distribution at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic School, Lehighton.
Joe Balogach, member, is only one of the many former Marines who take part in this annual event which helps so many children have a better Christmas.
Balogach said that this year the MCL will be serving 600 families with toys.
In Carbon County, 460 families are registered, with 160 families registered in Schuylkill County.
