Christmas is days away, and Channel 3's media partner US 101 will be hosting their annual Forgotten Child Fund Toy Drive Friday.

The drive will take place from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm at five local Walmart stores. The stores include Signal Mountain, Ooltewah, Hixson, Fort Oglethorpe and Gunbarrel.

US 101 will be accepting toys and monetary donations, both cash and card.

In 2017, the Forgotten Child Fund helped over 12,000 children in the Tennessee Valley and North Georgia.
