    First lady Michelle Obama dropped off 900 gifts yesterday as part of a Toys for Tots event in Washington, D.C. An annual drive of the Marine Corps, the campaign received the huge donation from the White House where Mrs. Obama began collecting toys for the program in 2009.

    The toys were collected from residents of the White House, including President Obama and the first couple’s daughters Sasha and Malia, in addition to employees, friends and corporate donors.

    “I’m very proud that the folks at the White House stepped up, and I think we have a larger contribution this year than even before,” the first lady said at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling surrounded by Marines and volunteers. “And I brought as many as I could here with me today, but we’re going to keep the drive going and keep sending it over.”
