Toys for Tots distributed more than 3,300 toys Saturday morning to families in need.

Organizers say the need was up from about 2,500 toys last year. However, at times, donations were in short supply.

The line for toys stretched around the building, but organizers say if the toys ran out in the afternoon, they would go down the street and purchase more. No family would be turned away.

While parents were waiting for toys, they expressed their gratitude and how much even just a few gifts are a huge help at the holidays.
