Families who need help providing toys for their children this Christmas should contact Toys for Tots now, according to Bob Alcorn, a spokesman for the local drive sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves.

Alcorn said families in need should leave their name, address and phone number at 410-658-1556.

He said he would connect them with the supporting charity closest to their home.
