CHAMPAIGN -- The holidays are here, and the U.S. Marines are making sure needy families get gifts this year. They were outside the Champaign County YMCA collecting for Toys for Tots.

The group is collecting donations for more than 3,000 kids in the county. More than 700 are 13-years old and older.

Toys for Tots never gets enough donations for teens. They prefer things like gift cards, MP3 players and makeup.
