It's hard to believe it but it's that time of year and once again, WFTV 9 Family Connection and our partners- Central Florida Auto Dealers Assocation, Physicians United Plan, Stanley Steemer and Southeast Steel along with K92.3 are proud to support the USMC's long standing campaign of helping make sure children in our community have presents to open during the holidays. This campaign is driven by individuals and businesses who donate toys and money for the children.
