(KTVI)-Build-A-Bear Workshops see many smiles throughout the year as children make cuddly friends to take home. But the St. Louis based store also knows that many children don’t get to smile at Christmas time because their families can’t afford presents. So they are asking visitors to any Build-A-Bear Workshop nationwide to drop off a new, unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots this weekend.

Participants can also make and purchase a furry friend to donate to the toy drive at the store.

Throughout the weekend, volunteer members of the U.S. Marine Corp will be on hand at stores at select times to collect the toys.
