WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — One Palm Beach County organization is doing all it can to make sure kids in need get a toy this holiday season.

The Palm Beach County FAMU Alumni Association hosted its seventh annual Toys For Tots drive.

This year, the organization had to think outside the box and set up a collection site at the Urban League of Palm Beach County.

"We are sure that there are probably more families that need this year more than last year because of COVID," Monica McCoy, president of the Palm Beach County FAMU Alumni Association, said. "We have families that have been laid off. We've had families that have lost one parent or so. We have one member of our organization alone that lost two of her parents to COVID."
