They also presented a check for $3,500, that will allow the U.S. Marines to purchase many more toys for children in need.

“We like to focus on children, we like to have as many positive interactions with children as we can,” President of Springfield Patrolmen’s Union, Joe Gentile told 22News. “Toys for Tots at Christmas time to be able to make kids happy is an incredible thing that they’ve done for so many years.”
