Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) The Toys for Tots program has been around for decades, but the program's fundamental goals remain the same. Helping children have a Merry Christmas in the Magic Valley.

"We've been doing Toys for Tots we've actually been doing something called KMVT's Christmas for Kids for, since about 1982, 1983, somewhere in that neighborhood. But then we joined in for Toys for Tots program and it gives us a little more assistance. Between the two programs we have, last year served in excess of 5,000 children,” said Paul Johnson with Neuhoff Communications.

The program benefits local families. People were already signing up for assistance at La Posada.

"Because at this time for our Christmas, my husband does not have a job and I would like my kids to be happy and to have something," said Martha Cruz.

With hundreds of toys already pouring in for the toys for tots drive, there are still ways that you can help before the Christmas Season.

"All they need to do is go to KMVT.com and go to the KMVT Christmas Toys for Tot icon located in the featured area and just click on that and it will give you all of the information if you want to donate, if you want to receive assistance, all that information is right there," said Paul Johnson.
