Side Effect of the War? Economy? Apathy?

Toys for Tots has just about run out of Toys. Dozens of nonprofit agencies in King and Pierce counties that rely on donated toys and gifts collected by U.S. Marine volunteers have been told there will fewer toys available for Christmas or none at all. The numbers define the problem: By this time in previous years, Marines had collected as many as 300,000 toys. This year, the number is barely 60,000!

This makes me very sad.

The food drive at my college had record low participation this year. I'm not sure why. :/
