GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Thousands of you have helped with our toys for tots efforts this year. Now those toys are going to needy kids. Toys for Tots volunteers are sorting and delivering gifts on Monday.

Bags of stuffed animals, Elmo dolls, CD cases, and other presents were among some of the goodies in the warehouse. Officials say they have exceeded their goal this year of 30,000 toys for the Sherman area.

"I can't thank them enough. Their generosity is overwhelming and it makes me happy to be able to coordinate this sort of thing and get these children taken care of for Christmas," Toys for Tots’ “Big Steve" Stephens says.

Organizers say they are still working on coming up with a total number of donations for this year.

    Congratulations to Grayson County and the Marine Corps Leaque. Big Steve, let me say thank you for all that you do. You do a great job coordinating this every year. I would also like to say thanks to KXII for participating every year. If it wasn't for ya'll promoting this like you do, it would not be possible. Also a big thanks to Chad Morrison and Alway Better Care for their support. Semper Fi.
