Lance Cpl. Gentres Anderson, from Pensacola, Florida, and Sgt. Sheldon Curry, from Montgomery, Alabama, help bring toys to the donation bins for the Marines' Toys for Tots Program in Montgomery, Alabama, Dec. 13, 2014. The program found its roots in 1947 Los Angeles when Marine Maj. Bill Hendricks, a reservist, collected more than 5,000 toys to help his community. The Marine Corps formally adopted the program the very next year, and it has continued to this day. “This is a great chance for us to give back to the community and help those families in need,” said Curry, who has lived his whole life in Montgomery. “I come from a family that didn’t have anything. We got fruit – apples, oranges – for Christmas. This makes a difference.” “Those kids that don’t have anything,” Curry added. “They really appreciate just having a gift.”
