Everybody Gets Involved In Toys For Tots

We at 100.5 The River, have teamed with WZZM13 this year in Toys For Tots, and we couldn't be prouder to be a  part of a campaign to make sure that all children in need will have some toys from Santa this Christmas.

"I gave her the best present," he boasted. Something he referred to as "big popper" and sounded like every mother's worst nightmare, but made the little girl crazy with glee.
