 As you sort through your leftover Halloween candy, another reason pops up to start thinking about Christmas. Starting today, one of the biggest toy drives gets underway - Toys for Tots.

Over the past 65 years, 450-million toys have been given out to more than 200-million kids through the Toys for Tots program.

You can donate at many different locations, including all Toys-R-Us and Babies-R-Us stores. 

The program is simple. You buy a toy and put it in a collection box. The Marine Reserves take care of the rest by wrapping the toys and making sure that a child in your community ends up receiving the gift.

In lieu of donating the new, unwrapped toys, you can also donate cash.

The program runs now through December 16.
