We’re getting down to the wire, folks. For the past three months, the USMC have been collecting, campaigning and working tirelessly to make the less fortunate children in New Mexico’s holiday brighter. 2 KASA and our sister station, KRQE News 13, have hosted (and continue to host) phone banks to collect monetary donations for folks that don’t have a toy to donate. Today, the Marines are at the corner of Menaul and Carlisle in the parking lot of American Home collecting toys and donations in a “drive-up” fashion. You don’t even have to get out of the car to donate.
There are so many ways to donate to the cause, folks. Take some time today to stop in and get an un-wrapped new toy for a little boy or girl this holiday season. This truly is a great time for the community to rally, come together and support those struggling families in our cities and towns throughout New Mexico. Want to learn more about Toys for Tots? Hop on to their website at toysfortots.org.
See you tomorrow, folks!

This weekend, get out and shop local. You have three chances to celebrate the season at various locations around town and contribute to our local economy.
Starting tonight, you can hit up the holiday stroll in Old Town. Be there as they light the tree, the kiddos can meet Santa, and you can walk away with some wonderful gifts at incredible prices. The fun starts around 4pm today. Be sure to arrive early as parking will fill up fast! For more info, log on to their website!
Tomorrow, hop over to Nob Hill for the Shop and Stroll and Twinkle Light Parade. Central will be closed off tomorrow during the day and evening to enjoy the crisp winter weather, get your local shopping done and enjoy some great food from one of the many eateries in the neighborhood. Be sure to stick around after the sun goes down for the annual Twinkle Light Parade. The largest holiday parade in New Mexico rolls down Central starting at 5:15. Get there to get good seats along the parade route. While you’re there, stop by and say hi to me, as well as Brittany Flowers, your Face of Fox. More online at the City’s website.
And both Saturday and Sunday will be busy in the North Valley for the Fourth Street Stop and Shop. Dozens of local shops will be featuring killer give-aways, great discounts and unique items, and the wonderful sights and sounds of the season will abound along the North Valley corridor. Find out more here.
Be safe out there this weekend. With temperatures not getting much above freezing the next few days, black ice will be possible. Stay safe and have a great weekend!
