1/5/2011 - KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Santa's helpers at Keesler collected 3,948 toys and $1,659 to provide presents for local children through the Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots campaign at Keesler.

"A lot of children were happy this Christmas, thanks to all of the volunteers on base who helped out," said Cheryl Moore, spearheading the base drive for the 10th consecutive year.

Master Sgt. Ernesto Alvendia from the airman and family readiness center assisted Ms. Moore with the 2010 campaign.

Collection boxes were placed at strategic locations on base, and many units and organizations had special toy collection drives.
