As Christmas fast approaches, there are a bevy of organizations providing food and shelter for homeless families and gift packages for our men and women of the military. There’s also a host of Christians ministries that are paying to have utility services restored for families struggling to pay bills. But the one act that speaks to the spirit of the Christmas holiday is placing a toy in the hands of children.

Due to circumstances beyond their control, there are many kids that will not wake up on Christmas morning with toys under the tree. ‘COMMUNITY VOICES’ host, Ron Holland spoke with three Marines that are working hard to ensure that the joy of Christmas is given to as many children as possible. Staff Sgt. Donnel Odom, Gunnery Sgt. Montreal Johnson and Gunnery Sgt. Andrew Phillips dropped by the Praise 100.9 & 92.7 FM studios to talk about their work with Toys for Tots.
