The Marines shopped for the Toys for Tots campaign with staff members of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin.

The toys they bought Tuesday morning will be handed out by Santa Claus at the Big Brothers/Big Sisters holiday party next week.

"It's great to bring the joy of Christmas to the children that don't have the need, it's good to just give back to the community in general," Ssgt. Dario Ramirez, Toys for Tots coordinator, said.
