U.S. Postal Service letter carriers will be collecting new, unwrapped toys on Saturday, December 1.

Customers are asked to leave the new toys by their mailboxes for the "Toys for Tots" campaign. Letter carriers will collect the toys as they deliver mail along their routes.  The toys will then be donated to kids in need.

Toys may also be dropped off at Post Offices.
