They will be collecting toys and monetary donations on Thursday and Friday from 6 a.m. till 7 p.m in the Guitar Center parking lot.

Toys should be new and unwrapped.

"Not everyone has money to give gifts," said Angela Wiegele, an Anchorage resident who has donated the past several years. "And I think that if everyone just chipped in a little bit and paid it forward, than everyone could just have a Merry Christmas.

Last year, more than 33,000 toys were distributed to nearly 30,000 children, according to their website.

If you are in need of toys for the holidays, you can visit the Toys for Tots website.
