EL PASO - Reving up for the holiday season... the third annual World of Wheels Car, Truck and Bike Show took place at the Cielo Vista Mall today to benefit Toys for Tots.
Those who donated a new, unwrapped toy gained free admission into the event... which featured more than 100 vehicles.
As the need for toys continues to grow in El Paso... the Marines attended the car show to accept donations.
"It really makes a difference to see a...when we give those toys to children and see a smile on their face...otherwise they would've gotten nothing...it really makes us feel good and thanks to the community for helping us out a lot," said Sgt. Gabriel Zubia, United States Marine Corps.
Toys for Tots will be collecting at all Toys-R-Us stores on Thursday and Friday.
