MASON CITY, Iowa - 'Tis the season for giving and you have a chance to help local families who need a little extra help this holiday season.
This year, KIMT News 3 and our Giving Your Best Partners Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank have teamed up with the North Iowa Marine Corps League and the Salvation Army for the Annual Toys for Tots Drive.
We collected donations at ShopKo in Mason City.
Hunter Seidel, one local boy who volunteers with the Marine Corps League shares why he decided to lend a helping hand.
"I know a lot of kids at school who may not have a lot of parents who can afford to buy toys for them or younger kids who have never grown up with a lot I have had, so I feel like as much I have had when I was a child it's nice to give back to kids."
Our next Toys for Tots Drive is Saturday, December 9th from 10 a.m. until noon at Walmart in Mason City.
