First Lady Michelle Obama and White House staff were on hand for the U. S. Marine Corps' "Toys for Tots" annual campaign.

The event took place Dec. 20 at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling facility in Southeast D.C. where about 800 toys were contributed. Mrs. Obama, who arrived with a large red bag full of toys, encouraged others to give.

"It's not too late to donate. It's still important to nudge our neighbors to give, give, give. We need people to bring in toys like never before," she said.
