US Marines are looking for your help this holiday season to make sure area kids have a magical Christmas.

As black Friday shoppers hit local stores today, Marines kicked off their Toys for Tots program.

Marines were at various locations, including Toys-R-Us, collecting gifts and donations for those less fortunate.

Sgt. Amy Garcia says "Toys for Tots is doing really well, we've already had one whole crate full of toys and we continue to have people come in and trickle in toys."

The Toys for Tots program hopes to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them as Christmas presents to needy children in the community.
