The Marine Corps League, American Legion, Kiwanis and Lions Clubs in Bozeman are teaming up once again this holiday season to put some presents under the tree for many kids in southwest Montana.

Hope & the Holidays is dedicated to helping families during times of need, especially during the holiday season.This special partnership of the Marine Corps League, the American Legion, and area Lions and Kiwanis clubs provides a Christmas for families in need in 6 counties (Broadwater, Gallatin, Jefferson, Madison, Park and Sweetgrass).

Starting right after Thanksgiving and continuing during the month of December, toy boxes are set out and people are asked to donate new, unwrapped toys, which are given to children in need (infant through 18 years of age). A truckload of toys went from the American Legion to the Billion Auto Group, where they will be handed out this season.

If you would still like to donate or sign up for the distribution list, call Santa's Hotline at 406-451-5312.
