MASON CITY, Iowa – It is that time of year again.

KIMT News 3 and our giving your best partners Diamond Jo Casino and First Citizens Bank are teaming up with the North Iowa Marine Corps League and the Salvation Army for the Toys for Tots Drive.

Community members came out To East Park in Mason City to donate gently used clothes and toys for those in need during this holiday season.

Al Pierce, member of the North Iowa Marine Corps League says he looks forward to this event every year, as it impacts many families.”

Years ago we had six counties now we have ten and I believe it’s over 5,000 children that we’ve helped and it is extremely rewarding. I can’t put a value on it, it’s extremely emotional.”

We will hold three more Toys for Tots days.

On Saturday, December 3rd we’ll be at Walmart in Mason City.

Sunday December 4th at the Polar Bear Plunge In Clear Lake and on Sunday December 10th at ShopKo in Mason City from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
