The line was more than a mile long at the Toys for Tots event Huber Heights, causing some traffic to back up.

The Dayton Toys for Tots program collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year to give to children in need.

This year’s turnout was massive.

“I’m standing out here because I’m a single mom of two kids and I work really hard. But I’ve been behind so I’m just trying to get enough for my kids to have a good Christmas,” Ashlyn Ogletree said.

The program will also hold pick-up times on Dec. 13 and Dec. 16 at the location on Brandt Pike.
