YARS family lends a hand with Toys for Tots

YOUNGSTOWN AIR RESERVE STATION, Ohio – Air Force Reserve Master Sgt. John Martinelli, an electrician assigned to the 910th Civil Engineer Squadron, loads a “Toys for Tots” collection box with a variety of toys at the Community Activity Center here, Dec. 19, 2013. Each year 910th Airlift Wing Citizen Airmen and Department of Defense personnel, assigned here, work with the YARS-based U.S. Marine Corps Reserve unit to collect new, un-wrapped toys for area boys and girls (newborn through 16 years of age) to provide a gift for Christmas morning the children might otherwise not receive. Hundreds and hundreds of toys were collected across the air station and throughout the local community as well as monetary donations used to purchase additional toys. The toys were then distributed by the Marines to children in need across the Mahoning Valley just in time for Christmas day. U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Bob Barko Jr.
