Every year, Toys for Tots collects toys for more than 118,000 children around the state and distributes them to kids who would otherwise go without a single present on Christmas Day.

"Out of the whole history of Toys for Tots this is the grimmest of times. We've never been this far behind. We are about 70,000 toys short this year. I've never seen empty boxes in this warehouse," Sgt. Juan Morales, assistant coordinator of Toys for Tots, said.

If you would like to help out and ensure no child goes without a present this holiday season, there is still time.

At Sunday's Broncos game, they will be collecting. Every Saturday, until Christmas, they'll collect at Bass Pro Shops and they will also be taking toys at Disney on Ice from December 8 to the 11. For a complete list of locations, go to
