Many generous families were helping to make the holidays happier for the children of National Guard soldiers who could not be home.

Hundreds donated Sunday to a toy drive for Chicago-area kids whose parents are serving in Afghanistan.

National Guard soldiers collected the toys at St. Andrew school on West Addison, and they handed out t-shirts and other tokens of appreciation to all the youngsters who took part.
