Some places are gearing up for the season of giving.
Fremont County will have its very own Toys For Tots drive for the first time ever.
The Marine Corps Reserve sponsors the campaign. There will be 13 drop-off sites throughout the county.
"It's a really, really good thing to give a kid a toy. Our motto is 'every child deserves a little Christmas,'" said Carl Clink, Fremont County Toys For Tots Organizer.
The campaign will officially kick off at the Christmas Parade in Cañon City on December 7th.
Clink says they are accepting names of children in need of toys. You can send the names to firstname.lastname@example.org
