(KSL News) It isn't a very Merry Christmas for the children's charity "Toys for Tots." This year, the nationwide organization says donations of toys and cash is at the lowest level in five years.

The drop is especially harsh since last year "Toys for Tots" was given a record 19 million toys to give to less fortunate children.

Organization leaders say the decrease means more than two million kids will have to go without this season. "I'm getting a lot of phone calls from families that are patiently waiting, the ones that are really in need, and they're scared," said Master Sgt. Timothy Butler, coordinator for "Toys for Tots."

Of course, it isn't too late to donate to Toys for Tots. To find out how, just click the related link.
