People in McLean and Tysons have the chance to help others through a series of upcoming donation drives.
Toys for Tots is organized through the United States Marine Corps to help struggling families afford Christmas gifts for their children. Around 97% of proceeds go to families in need, according to the website. The remaining 3% covers administrative costs.
Anyone wishing to donate toys can bring them to Meineke Car Care Center (1524 Spring Hill Road). The last day for donations to Toys for Tots is Dec. 12.
Soles4Souls is a non-profit based in Nashville that fights poverty, according to its website.
