HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Join News 3 to make sure every local child has a special holiday season in the sixth year of our toy drive!

You can participate by dropping off toys at any of the drop off locations by December 19.

The toys will be distributed to local children living in shelters by the non profit group ForKids.

Monetary donations will also be accepted at any Southern Bank location or click here to donate online now.
