ST. CLOUD - The holidays are nearly here, and Toys for Tots is in full swing. You can help make an area kid's Christmas a lot brighter with a donation to Catholic Charities' annual gift drive.

Toys for Tots collects new, unwrapped toys, books, school supplies, hats, mittens, as well as cash and gift cards, for kids 16 and younger in need around central Minnesota.

The drive will wrap up on December 15th.

There are dozens of collection sites all around the St. Cloud area, and you can find the complete list here.
