At the end of the drive, the toys will be picked up by service members from the U.S. Marine Corps. They’re delivered to a Marine Toys for Tots central warehouse, where they are sorted and distributed, according to the airport.
“Last year, the toy drive was a huge success,” airport executive director Clara Bennett said in a statement. “We collected dozens of boxes, totaling hundreds of toys, which were then given to children who otherwise might have gone without a present during the holidays.”
