The month-long Toys For Tots toy drive rolls on this evening with their latest satellite event. Tonight, the Be Proud Foundation, the 41st Assembly District Democrats Club and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve are joining forces to give donated toys to underprivileged children in the Russian-speaking community.
