The Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" campaign kicked off today at Central Bank on Southland Drive in Lexington.

The organization collects presents to give to the Salvation Army. They will then be handed out to children from families who are in need of extra support during the holiday season.

Organizers said the toys must be new and unwrapped.

They’re looking for toys for children of all ages – from infants to teenagers.

The campaign runs through December 9th.

Central Bank drop off locations include Lexington, Richmond, Berea, Georgetown and Nicholasville.

This is the 10th year Central Bank has sponsored Toys for Tots.
