The Tulsa Marine Corps is collecting toys for the annual Toys for Tots Drive.

The Tulsa Tesla Club got in on collecting toys, and were able to fill a truck full with toys for Green Country children.

Blake Greene, Events Manager for Tesla Owners Club of Oklahoma, tells us, "it always feels better to give than to receive and to me it makes me feel better to know that I can do something for others to make an impact on their lives."

Fifteen Teslas filled their trunks with toys and drove down South Peoria to meet up for the drive.

Marine Staff Sergeant Trey Wimp says they are hoping to collect fifty thousand toys this year.

"The less fortunate and the needy obviously come first and we give to low income areas as well", Marine Staff Sergeant Trey Wimp says, "they register, we approve their application and then they come on December 18th -21st and we distribute toys to their parents."
