BLUEFIELD, W.Va (WVVA) - The Marine Corps League, which is the driving force behind Toys for Tots, found a way to expand their good work with local kids.

Teachers from several local schools were excited to find a variety of books they can add to their classroom libraries.
Rod Mayberry with Toys for Tots added that they were happy to add an educational component to help students and teachers.
