The U.S. Marine Corps will celebrate the 15th year of its annual holiday train when the Marine Corps Reserves’ Dunkin’ Donuts Toys for Tots Train delivers toys and coats to thousands of children in Upstate New York on Saturday, Dec. 7, and Sunday, Dec. 8.

At a press conference to launch this year’s holiday toy drive, Dunkin’ Donuts announced a donation of $30,000 to the Toys for Tots Foundation, bringing its five-year total to $140,000.
