Help Bring the Joy of Christmas to Less-Fortunate Children

The holiday season will be here before you know it and many area families will be struggling to make Christmas great for their kids, especially this year.

96.3 ROV and iHeartRadio Roanoke/Lynchburg are proud to partner with the US Marine Reserve in Roanoke and Lynchburg for this year's Toys for Tots campaign.

Last year in Roanoke, 18,032 toys were distributed and 4,236 children were supported. In Lynchburg last year, 6,476 toys were distributed and 2,050 children supported.

Please plan to give a new, unwrapped toy to a child in need this holiday season.
