However, at this time in 2011, they were 70,000 toys short - compared to being 85,000 short in 2012.
The issue lies with the lack of donations. Only 15,000 toys have been donated, last year at this point they had 50,000.
Toys for Tots has 249 nonprofit organizations to provide for, and they have only been able to give out to 52 of them. In 2011, they were able to donate over 141,000 toys.
Their big needs right now are ages three to nine for both boys and girls.
